Cakes are a all time favourite of all people whether 7yr old or 70yr old. The recipe I am posting today is my all time favourite cake with lots of chocolate and walnut. Both have their own health benefits. This cake tastes best with hot coffee in the morning or at tea time. Chocolate is a favourite cake flavouring in Italy and it is complemented by nuts such as Almonds, Walnuts, hazelnuts, raisins, and so on.
I make this cake without Rum, you can add Rum to get that extra flavour.

I make this chocolate cake anytime of the year, on birthdays, on christmas eves or you just dont need any occasion to make this one. 

so one afternoon just wanted to surpise my husband with this delicious cake.

all the ingredients are generally present at home, so I just started making this one. I usually make this in a Parat, a vessel used to knead flour. add in sugar and butter and just mix it well. I do iot with hands, Coz wat I feel the softness of the cake lies in how well you mix all the ingredients.

then gradually add in all the other remaining ingredients. 



  • If the batter starts cuddling when adding eggs, add in little maida. Cuddling will get over.
  • Mix the cake batter with hands. This will make the cake more soft.
  • The more you mix it the more softer the cake is.
