Hi guys!!! How are you all..

Today I am going to share my chocolate grape recipe. This recipe is very simple & not much cooking skills is required so basically you can say that it’s a beginner recipe. This cake has some special place in my life, it was my first gift to my boyfriend on his birthday (now he is my Mr husband :)). But still whenever I make this cake it reminds me of my old good days of dating (blush blush).

Chocolate grape cake

I made this cake with mix of whole wheat & all purpose flour to make it slightly healthy. The best thing about home baked cakes is you can play with sugar & butter quantities to suit your requirement. I usually do not prefer much icing on my cakes. If for gifting purpose then definitely yes, but for home use I like to have this cake without icing & with a layer of hot chocolate on the top.

Baking time :20-25 min

Serving : 4

Preparation time : 15 min

Ingredients:

For cake

  • Whole wheat flour – 1/2 cup
  • All purpose flour – 1/2 cup
  • Cocoa powder (unsweetened) – 3 teaspoon
  • Milk – 1/4 cup
  • Curd – 2 teaspoon
  • Coffee powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Unsalted butter – 100gms
  • Brown sugar – 1 cup
  • Black grapes – 1 cup (cut into medium pieces)
  • Strawberry – 3-4 (optional)

For chocolate topping

  • Cocoa powder – 5 teaspoon
  • Fresh cream – 1 cup
  • Brown sugar – 1/2 cup

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.
  2. In a mixing bowl add butter , brown sugar & curd. Mix well till the mixture is smooth.
  3. In another bowl mix all dry ingredients (Whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, coffee powder & cocoa powder). Divide into 3 parts.
  4. Add one part of dry ingredients to wet mixture & fold them to form a smooth mixture. Similarly add other two parts of dry ingredients.
  5. If your batter is too dry, add some milk to it to make it soft. Whisk the batter for 3-4 minutes if using an electric beater or for 7-8 minutes if using hands.
  6. Add baking powder, baking soda & grapes to it.
  7. Grease the cake pan with oil or butter & shift the batter.
  8. Place the pan in a preheated oven and bake the cake at 180 degrees Celsius for 25minutes. Check the cake with toothpick, it should come out clean and dry when inserted in the cake.
  9. For chocolate sauce topping, mix fresh cream, cocoa powder & sugar in pan. Heat the mixture for 5min till it start boiling. switch off the flame & allow it to cool.
  10. Using flat spatula, apply chocolate sauce on cake top & sides. Sliced it & enjoy with family.
