Whenever you are mixing for the cake with hand or hand mixer, you should mix in one direction only to get soft cakes.
If you are using Maida, for each cup measurement take 2 Tbsp less and instead add 2 Tbsp of cornflour.
The consistency of butter milk should be same as that of dosa batter. It should not be very thin
Make sure your oven settings are correct, else cakes won’t come proper even though recipe is correct)
Method: (With Step-by-Step pics)
Preheat oven to 175 degree. Line a cake pan with baking sheet (butter paper) and keep it ready. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl take sugar and vegetable oil. Mix with a mixer in high speed until its combined well
Mix in the eggs one at a time in high speed. Add vanilla essence and mix
Add the dry ingredients to it, little at time (about 2Tbsp) mixing after each addition, just until combined. (All steps from this step should be done in low/medium speed)
When you are start finding it difficult to mix starts adding curd and mix. Add wine little at a time and mix until combined.
Batter is ready (The batter prepared will be runny, it should freely fall from the spoon)
Pour the batter evenly into the cake pan. Bake in the middle rack for 40- 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the cake from the pan and let it cool. The cake tastes better the next day
