Chocolate Butter Cake

There is nothing more exciting than being with your sister for her birthday. I celebrated my sister's birthday by baking a soft and delicious butter chocolate cake.

Ingredients :

All purpose flour : 1 1/4Cup
Butter  : 1/2Cup, 113g
Castor Sugar : 1Cup
Eggs : 2, at room temperature
Baking Powder  :1tsp
Baking Soda : 1/2 tsp
Dark Chocolate : 60gms
Cocoa Powder : 1/4cup
Salt : 1/8tsp
Boiling Water : 1/2Cup

Method : 

1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees celsius). Line a 11 X 8 in square tin with grease proof paper.

2. Pour the boiling water over chocolate cocoa powder mixture and set aside to melt completely.

3. Sift the flour ,baking soda,baking powder and salt into a bowl and  set aside. 

4. With an electric mixer,  cream the butter. Gradually add the castor sugar and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the whole eggs,one at a time mixing well after each addition. 

5. Mix in the vanilla. Pour the  chocolate cocoa mixture and mix until just combined.

6.. Now add the flour mixture and beat until all the ingredients are incorporated. Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake for about 35 minutes until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
