Chocolate & Walnut Cake



Ingredients :

4 Eggs (50 gms each eggs x 4 = 200 gms)

Maida / Wheat Flour = 200 gms

Sugar = 200 gms (I used Dermerara Sugar bought from Arife, Bandra)

Butter = 200 gms (I used Nutrilite Butter – Room Temperature)

Cocoa Powder = 2 tbps. (remove 2 tbps. of Maida / Wheat Flour if u want to put Cocoa Powder)

Baking Powder = 1 tbps.

Vanilla Essence = 1 tbps.

1 cup crushed and Roasted Walnuts

Method :

Line 8” Baking Tray with Parchment Paper and apply oil / butter around and spread out little Maida for greasing and keep aside. Pre-heat Mircrowave Convection at 170 Degrees. (I normally put it for 1.15 hrs.)

Mix Maida / Wheat, Cocoa Powder and  Baking Powder and sieve.

Put Eggs, Sugar, Butter and Vanilla Essence in a vessel and beat well. Add sieved Maida / Wheat Flour, Baking Powder and Cocoa Powder and Walnuts little by little and beat well. Add little milk in case the batter is thick.

Pour the batter into the baking tray and put into the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes or till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

If the batter is too much, you can put some batter into the paper cup cakes and bake these too along with 8” Baking Tray. (I normally put Cup Cake Tray above 8” Baking Tray in the oven and remove Cup Cake Tray after its well baked and continue baking 8” baking tray)Depending on the weight of the eggs, same proportion is reqd. for Maida / Wheat Flour, Sugar, Butter

This is my 3rd attempt and it came out good. This time I’ve use Tropolite Whipping Cream.

I made this for my Birthday (4th June) for my Office friends. I also made Pineapple Cake which I will upload in my Post.


Ingredients : 

NESTLÉ MILKMAID Sweetened Condensed Milk 1 tin (400 g)

Maida 175 g (1¾ cup)

Butter 100 g

Cocoa Powder 3-4 heaped tbsps (25g)

Baking Powder 1 tsp

Soda Bicarbonate 1 tsp

Vanilla Essence 1 tsp

Aerated soda 1-1/3 cups (200 ml) – PEPSI / COKE / THUMS UP

For Icing:

NESTLÉ Premium Milk Chocolate 2 packs (50g) (I used selbourne chocolate bar)

Tinned Cherries 1 small tin, destoned

Cream 400 g

Icing Sugar/Powdered Sugar 2 level tbsps

Method :

Pre heat the oven at 170 C. (Microwave Convection)

Grease an 8” diameter baking tin and dust it with flour.

Sieve together maida, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda bicarbonate (sieve 2-3 times for better aeration).

Soften Butter (do not melt). Add NESTLÉ MILKMAID Sweetened Condensed Milk and beat well. Add the vanilla essence.

Add maida mixture and aerated soda alternately to the batter till all the maida and soda are used up.

Pour the batter into the baking tin (8” diameter) and bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or till the tooth pick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

Remove from oven, cool for a while. Loosen sides of cake, using a knife if necessary. Turnout over a wire rack/plate lined with cloth (to absorb moisture) and cool slightly before cutting horizontally into 2.

Drain the cherries syrup. Soak both cakes halves with 5-6 tablespoons of cherry syrup.

Whip cream and sugar over a bowl of ice and cold water till light and fluffy.

Sandwich the two layers of cake with 3-4 tablespoons of whipped cream and half of the chopped cherries.

Cover the top and sides with rest of the whipped cream.

Sprinkle generously with grated chocolate and top with cherries.

Chill and serve.

Chocolate Brownies

Hi Friends,

Made Chocolate Brownies today and it turned out to be good. But became too soft and its difficult to cut into blocks. So we had to eat it as pudding 😦

Instead of Milk Chocolate, I had use Morde’s Dark Chocolate.

Found this recipe from Nigella Lawson’s Website ( and also Aarthi’s Blog (

Thanx to them!

Cut them into blocks
