Chocolate Cake



Ingredients:

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
4 heaped tblsp Cocoa powder
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cup Maida / All purpose flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts - Almonds, Cashews, chocolate chips

Method:

1. Beat Sugar, butter and cocoa in a deep bowl till soft.

2. Add eggs one at a time beating continuously.

3. Sift baking powder and flour together 2-3 times. Add this to the mixture prepared earlier, 2-3 tablespoons at a time, beating continuously.

4. Stir in 1 cup nuts.

5. In a greased 9" by 13" baking dish, spread a layer of the remaining 1/2 cup nuts.

6. Pour the cake batter over this nuts layer.

7. Bake at 350 F on center rack for about 30-35 min. A toothpick inserted in the cake should come out clean.

Tips

• You can increase the quantity of nuts depending on how nuttier you want your cake. I normally make the bottom layer fill with nuts with no spaces.
