Chocolate Cake

Christmas is around the corner and it’s the time for baking a chocolate cake. Baking an easy chocolate dessert like this chocolate cake with my kids is a wonderful experience. Yesterday I have baked this cake with a little bit twist by adding  ash gourd morobba and it came out very delicious .Kids love chocolate and this chocolate cake is a hit among the children.


2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups white sugar (cane sugar)

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 eggs

1 cup milk

¼ cup butter (melted)

1 tsp vanilla extract

50 gram ash gourd morobba/chalkumror morobba (cut into pieces)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch pan.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and melted butter. Make a well in the centre and pour in the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Place the morobba on the top of the batter.

Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
