Cakes are simply delicious and chocolate cakes are just irresistible. Cream, melted chocolate and nuts toppings makes it even more delicious. I have given below a recipe of basic low fat chocolate cake. It utilizes just a tbsp of butter and is therefore a healthier alternative to the regular chocolate cakes without compromising on the taste.


1 cup milk
2 tbsp vinegar
1 cup maida (All purpose flour)
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp soda bi carbonate
A pinch of salt
1 egg
1 cup sugar (powdered)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp melted butter


First add vinegar to the milk and set aside for about 15 minutes. This is done to get sour milk. Meanwhile take a dry bowl, add maida, cocoa powder, baking powder, soda bicarbonate and salt. Mix well and then using a sieve, sieve it twice. This is done to incorporate air into the mixture. (For sieving the easiest method is to take big clean sheet of paper or plastic, place a sieve on top and add the dry ingredients on it. Raise the sieve and gently tap so that the ingredients are filtered. Do the same thing using another sheet. Once the dry ingredients are sieved twice, empty them on a clean dry bowl). Then take another bowl and beat the egg. When it has turned creamy, add the sugar, vanilla essence and beat until small bubbles are seen. Then add butter and beat again. It should be smooth and fluffy. Finally add the dry ingredients and sour milk little by little. Mix well with a spoon so that no lumps are formed and the batter is very smooth. Then preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 160 degree Celsius with the lower rods on and grease the baking dish with butter. Pour the batter on the baking dish and place it in the central rack. Bake for about 30 minutes at the same temperature or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (Temperature and time may change in your oven and hence keep a close watch if you are making for the first time). Once done, take it out and allow it to cool. Remove on a plate, add cream and toppings of your choice, cut into pieces and serve.
