Chocolate Wine Cake Recipe

 


Ingredients:

  • All purpose flour – 2 cups
  • Cocoa powder – 2 Tbsp (heaped)
  • Baking powder – 1 tsp
  • Baking Soda – 1 tsp
  • Salt – ½ tsp
  • Sugar – 1 ¾ cups
  • Vegetable/Sunflower oil – 1 cup
  • Eggs – 2
  • Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
  • Curd – 1/2 cup
  • Wine (grape) – 1/2 cup

 

(Note: 1 Cup = 250 ml.

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.

Make sure your oven settings are correct, else cakes won’t come proper even though recipe is correct)
