I am telling you right now that this recipe is impossible to replicate.
My mother has always baked the best darned homemade chocolate cake ever and if any professional bakers ever saw how she did it they would keel over die.
She throws in a little of this and a bit of that into the batter as if she were tweaking a chicken curry and yet it works as each time she makes this cake it is simply outstanding.
This past summer after several decades of my life…I am finally attempting to blog her recipe. Beware – the finer the ingredients you use – the more you will fail at this cake. Please us good old supermarket brands – like Cadbury cocoa in India and perhaps nestle in the US. All I can say is good luck!
PS: It helps if your tongue hovers over your upper lip whilst you bake this particular recipe!
