Wheat Cake

It’s Easter. Zoya’s all cranky because of her shots. Singh finally gave the 40-year-old cot for repairs. Mary is on a holiday. My mother came at 7 am and did my dishes while I slept through sunrise and beyond. For a change, last night there were no mosquitoes. And I am in a mood to bake.

So here is to Easter!

– 2 cups wheat flour (atta)
– 1/2 cup cocoa powder OR 1 cup Bournvita / Chocolate Horlicks
– 1 and a 1/2 cups sugar if you’ve used cocoa OR 3/4 cup sugar if  you used Bournvita / Chocolate Horlicks
– 3 tsp baking powder
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 1/2 cup curd
– 2/3 cup unsalted butter
– 2 eggs
– 2 tbsp vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C
  2. Grease a baking dish with some of the butter and sprinkle some wheat flour on itcake pans or other sized baking dish
  3. Sift and mix the wheat flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt
  4. Whisk the eggs
  5. When frothy, add the butter, sugar and vanilla. Whisk till the sugar loses its graininess
  6. Add the curd
  7. Using a large spoon, add the dry flour mix and whisk till its all well blended
  8. Distribute this batter into the baking dish and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until a spoon inserted into center comes out clean
  9. Let the cake cool before icing it
  10. For the icing, I recommend the #ThatsTheBestFrostingI’veEverHad icing

Happy Easter!
