Double Chocolate Cake (a surprise cake for my sweet hubby's b'day...!!)

For the cake:
  • All purpose flour 1 1/2 cup
  • Warm water 1 cup
  • Cocoa pdr 1/2 cup
  • Baking soda 3/4 Tsp
  • Sunflower oil 1/2 cup
  • Vanilla essence 1 Tbsp
  • Distilled white vinegar 2 Tsp
  • Salt 1/2 Tsp
  • Sugar 1 cup
For Chocolate Ganache:
  • Dark Chocolate 200 gm 
  • Amul fresh cream 200 ml

Preheat the oven to 190 deg C. Grease one 8 inch pan and keep it aside. Mix warm water and cocoa pdr without lumps. Combine flour, baking soda, sugar and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Then pour cocoa mix, oil and vanilla essence into it and beat well. Finally add vinegar. Transfer it into the greased pan and bake it for 30 to 35 mins. (It took 50 mins for me.) Bake and cool well. 

For preparing ganache, cut the baking chocolate into small pieces. Heat the cream until it starts boiling and pour it over the chocolate. Stir well and allow it to cool to room temp and refrigerate it. Pour it over the cake and slowly spread it using a spatula.
