How to Make Scrumptious Chocolate Cake

  • Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and cocoa all together, several times. Keep aside.
  • Pour condensed milk in a bowl.
  • Add the butter, and beat till smooth.
  • Add the flour spoon by spoon, mixing into the condensed milk mixture.
  • In between, add milk as required if the butter begins to get too stiff (stir the mixture in one direction all the while. This will incorporate more air and make the cake lighter).
  • Once all the flour is used, beat the batter as above till light (5-7 mins).
  • Add the coke and mix gently till smooth.
  • Pour into a greased cake tin. Do not smoothen with a spoon. If the consistency is right this will not be needed.
  • Pre-heat oven to 300 degree C.
  • Bake the cake at 200 degree C for 5-7 mins and 150 degree C till done (35-40 mins).
  • Poke with a skewer and check.
  • Cool a little. Invert on wire rack.
  • Cool completely before icing.
  • For Icing:
  • Sift icing sugar into a bowl. Keep aside.
  • Melt butter carefully in a pan.
  • Add milk and bring to just below simmering point.
  • Simultaneously, heat castor sugar in another pan.
  • Pour into caramel, stir to dissolve.
  • Pour over icing sugar, beat till thick and creamy.
  • Spread over cake immediately.
