Strawberry Chocolate Cake

 A dessert is a wonderful way to end a meal. It is light and delicious and this recipe is very simple too.This cake uses no eggs,no butter and no milk and very little oil  and sugar, yet is deliciously moist.Almonds and berries gives it a wonderful flavour.

Strawberries - 250 gm
finely chopped almonds - 50 gm
flour no 1 - 200gm
baking powder - 1 tsp
white sugar - 150- 200gm
cocoa powder - 3 tbsp
bicarbonate of soda - 1 tsp
canola oil - 80 ml
vanilla essence - 1 tsp
vinegar - 15 ml
cold water - 250 ml

to decorate : (optional)
instant dairy whip -40 gm
milk - 100 ml
strawberry slices - few.

Makes - 15 pieces
Preparation time - 20 minutes
Baking time - 40 minutes

Steps to follow:
Get ready with all the ingredients.

 Wash and finely slice the strawberries. Soak, remove skin and finely chop the almonds.
 Combine strawberries and almonds in a separate bowl.

   Sift the dry ingredients and transfer to a separate bowl and make a well in the centre.

In another bowl whisk the oil,vinegar,vanilla essence, sugar and cold water and pour the mixture into the well.

Whisk until well blended.
 Fold the strawberries and almonds and transfer into the bowl. Blend gently.

 Here Iam going to use my favourite baking pan to bake this special cake.This consists of 3 parts.
Check here  for my baking utensils.

 Grease the pan or tray whatever you use.
Pour the batter into the pan . Preheat the oven to 180-200 degree celcius.

 Bake for 30- 40 minutes or until done.
 And the testing skewer should come out clean.
 Remove the tray from the pan.

 Turn upside down the tray to the pan.
 Leave the cake until cool.
Cut the cake into squares or triangle and cover and store.This is multipurpose pan, so I stored the cakes in the pan itself.

to decorate : (optional)
instant dairy whip -40 gm
milk - 100 ml
cocoa or drinking chocolate powder - 1tsp
strawberry slices - few.

Add the instant dairy whip,cocoa  and milk whisk for 5 minutes  until get the  creamy texture.

 Squeeze  cream or spoon over the cake,decorate with thinly sliced strawberry and serve.

Yummy Strawberry Chocolate Cake is ready to serve.
Enjoy! Have a Happy Weekend !
