The Sinful Chocolate Cake

Day 2 under Christmas Dinner and I could not miss a cake .I would have loved to make Christmas Cake , but I already have two versions of it. Cakes have  always been  a must on Christmas when the girls were here . In fact we all were so fond of cakes that we either got one or made one . We just needed an excuse to eat cakes . With passing time everyone has become conscious and we avoid sweets . Juhi is the youngest and still very young so once in a while we do indulge into these treats . We do not want her to get over conscious at such an early age .In fact this cake has been baked by her, I just stepped in at the last minute to add those toppings and click pictures.

She scaled down the recipe to half . The recipe followed is of the basic chocolate cake , from Gayathri ‘s blog  , with a variation by adding a biscuit base to it . The cake turned out absolutely delicious , really spongy . The Hershey’s spread gave a Nutty taste and the kisses just added on to sinfulness .Talking of Hershey’s I have a real sinful pudding with it which is a total hit.

  1. Kudos to Juhi! The cake looks so soft and spongy. And so very CHOCOLATEY. Love the way you’ve decorated it – I too find topping cakes with chocolates and cookies the easiest and kids love them so much.

  2. Your cakes are legendary Vaishali. Kudos to Juhi for getting this sinful chcoclate cake bang on, love the biscuit base with chocolate cake …..perfect crunch for the gooey smooth chocolate.
