Luscious Chocolate Cake

UPDATE: I know that sour cream is next to impossible to find if you are in Mumbai. You can still make this cake, find the recipe to make your own sour cream at home here. Hope this helps!

Today, let talk about my absolute favorite chocolate cake in the whole wide world. Yes, I'm that sure that no other can beat it. I'm sure you're thinking, how can she be so sure? Well here's how. Every time I bake this cake, and I do bake it often (a few instances are here, here and the one in this post), its gets wiped off. I've learnt my lesson after the first few times. I'm glad you asked. The lesson is Click a picture of the cake as soon as its ready, coz once its cut, it'll be over before you can capture it on camera. Also, its a Nigella Lawson recipe, I mean, come on, need I say more. Those of you following this blog know what a big Nigella fan I am. I have watched the episodes of her cooking shows multiple times and still don't mind watching them all over again.

Imagine my joy when I came across the Maison Cupcake blog. Sarah, of Maison Cupcake is hosting the Forever Nigella blogging challenge.


The first round was already done with by the time I got to know about this event. For the second round, I'm going to share this cake that was recently baked for an order I had.






You can find the recipe for this cake here. I stuck to the original recipe. Why mess with something so perfect? This recipe is really simple and comes together quickly. Try it out and I'm sure you'll love it too. Oh and I must say that this recipe works well for cupcakes as well. Somehow, I think they're better with a big dollop of chocolate icing on the top.  :o)



I love the rustic look of the cake, nothing fancy schmancy. But once you bite into it, its heavenly. I think I'm going to call this cake "The most Heavenly Chocolate Cake ever".

For those of you who'd like to participate in this event, the deadline is 20th Feb. You still have a couple of days to work on your submission. Hop over to Maison Cupcake for more details. Hope to see you there!
