Wheat chocolate cake with apple topping

Made these wheat flour dark chocolate cake to satisfy the family's chocolate craving. It was yum and never felt that I've not used maida (all purpose flour). Added a little instant coffee to bring out the dark colour. The apple topping also came out well and seemed best when served warm on cake.


 You need
  • Wheat flour - 1 cup
  • Dark cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
  • Eggs - 2 
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup (increase to 1 cup if you need it more sweet)
  • Oil - 3/4 cup
  • Instant coffee powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
  • Warm water - 1 tbsp
For apple topping
  • Apple - 1 grated
  • Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Corn flour - 1 tsp
  • Sugar - 2 tsp






Method
  • Sieve together wheat flour, baking powder and dark chocolate powder. Keep aside
  • Mix water and instant coffee powder to get coffee liquor. Keep aside
  • In a bowl break the eggs and beat well. To this add oil and mix well
  • Add powdered sugar to the above and mix well to get a fine batter.
  • To this add vanilla essence. Mix well
  • To the above add half of the the sieved wheat flour, dark choco and baking powder mix and blend well. 
  • Add coffee to the above and blend well 
  • Blend in the remaining flour mix. 
  • Pour in a baking dish and bake at 150 degrees for 20-25 minutes. (Ovens work differently, so adjust your oven accordingly).
For apple topping
  • In a pan cook grated apple in little water. Add cinnamon and sugar. Cover and cook for 5 minutes on low flame.
  • Make a paste of corn flour in cold water. Add this to the above and let it become saucy.
  • Switch off.


To serve top the cake pieces with apple topping. It tastes better when served warm.
