 You all know that I love chocolate...This cake is the proof of how much I love chocolate,This one is completely chocolaty..The frosting I made is one of the best frosting ever.It is rich and creamy and yummy..The cake itself is a very moist cake,because of the amount of liquid that goes into this..The batter of the cake should be watery,that what makes the cake very moist..And also I made a cake stand to display all my cakes,I will post those pictures soon...
So I hope you all will give this a try and let me know what you think..

Add hot water into cocoa and mix that well.let both the chocolate and the cocoa mixture cool completely...

I have tears in my eyes looking at the sheer beauty of that cake!! WANT!!!!

I am definitely going to try this.

I have to say, Aarthi, you make every recipe seem so simple. I have the confidence that I can make a chocolate cake. I used to be worried that it will be dry because of the milk, but I think I can try this one...
Keep up the fabulous blogging... :)

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@mahaHot water makes the chocolate cake really moist and dense...

dany said... Best Blogger Tips

the boiling water is the key here... its the difference between a cocoa cake and a chocolate cake... i figured it out after so many trial/errors... and now i see it in the blog... would have saved me so much trouble if i had seen this blog before
