It is just sinful, and one sin that we all want to commit. Now for all of you who already want a bite right now, don’t fret. Here,

Cake Ingredients

You will need 3 eggs, 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of softened butter, 1 cup sugar, ¼ cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, and 125 grams of chocolate.

Cake Preparation Method

First you need to preheat your oven to 180 degrees centigrade or 350 degrees fahrenheit. Get a hold of 2 cake tins which are around 7 inch in diameter and grease them. Boil some water in a pan, and set a bowl with the chocolate in it on this pan, so as to melt the chocolate. Take the butter, sugar and eggs and beat all of it well together. Now add the melted chocolate to this mixture and beat this well again. Now mix the flour and cocoa powder well, sift mix this with your previous mixture. Pour this final mixture into the 2 cake tins and put them in the oven. Let this bake for around 40 to 45 minutes. After that, take out the tins and check if the mixture has risen well. If not, bake it for around 5 to 10 minutes more, at which time it should be done properly.

Icing Ingredients

For the icing you will need 100 grams of butter, 1½ cup of icing sugar, 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder, and just ½ a teaspoon of vanilla essence.

Now you just need to mix all these ingredients together and beat it well. You will get a light brown colored chocolate cream. As simple as that.
