Over time I have realised that the love that chocolate cake gets is exceptional. Most people ask me to make chocolate cake for almost every occasion. So, I am always on the look out for different recipes for chocolate cake.

I found this recipe by Marlene Matar on the net and later came to know that many bloggers swear by it. It worked as a huge motivation to try the recipe myself. Such things get me so excited, I feel, this is the freedom we get as cooks. We get to try so many things at our own risk. The icing on the cake is, when you get satisfactory results at the end of your experiment.

My batter was ready, and I baked it not knowing how it would taste. But to my surprise, this was a delightful cake. After tasting the peeled off portion of the cake I realised it would taste delicious with a berries. I had fresh cherries at home.

Flour 1 cup
Coco powder 2/3 cup
Baking Powder ½
Baking Soda ¼ tsp
Salt ¼ tsp
Butter 170 grams
Vanilla Extract 1 tsp
Sugar 1 cup + 1/3 cup
Coffee powder 1 & ½ tsp
Eggs 2 ½ no
Yoghurt 2/3 cup


  • Pre heat the oven.
  • Dissolve the coffee powder in 10 ml hot water.
  • Sift the flour.
  • Add Baking powder, Baking soda, Coco Powder and salt into the flour, keep your dry ingredients ready.
  • In a bowl, beat butter and sugar along with the coffee powder. Make sure the colour turns lights and the texture becomes fluffy.
  • Add eggs in the above mix, add one egg at a time.
  • Mix dry and wet ingredients together and make sure there are no lumps. Add yoghurt and mix gently and don’t overbeat it.
  • Bake at 165 Degree Celsius

So I chopped lots of cherries, mixed them in the cream. Cut three layers of my cake, filled the cherry cream inside the two bottom layers. I garnished the top layer with the plain cream to give it a clean look. You can finish icing the cake, as you like.

This is another recipe I have learnt, one more recipe to woo people with.
