Chocolate cake recipe with frosting

Updated on October 10, 2013

Chocolate Cake

Cakes are my ever time favorite experimentation stuffs. I got my love for cake recipe from my father. During Christmas time, he used to make cakes in bundles and distributed among his friends and relatives, along with his home made wine. That was a time of Joy and celebration. He did'nt had even OVEN with him, He used a mechanism to bake, using his gas stove itself. The taste of his cake is still in my mouth.. any way even though, I wont come as much better as he do, I do get appreciation from him and that make me feel so proud, that after all I'm his daughter ;)

Chocolate cake with frosting is the experimentation that I done for this year's Xmas cake fest at office. I started with the simple recipe of black forest and later gave it a chocolate frosting and then experimented with icing ;) I'm sure that you will enjoy this recipe...

      I just looked up maida. I will have to try an alternate flour, as I am wheat intolerant. Sounds wonderful!!
