Chocolate cake

This one is a simple chocolate cake recipe. This cake was simply sinful and yummy. Here goes the recipe....

Flour - 2 cups
Sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Cocoa powder - 100 grams
Vanilla baking powder - 2 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Egg white of 2 eggs
Condensed milk cream - 170 gram or 1 small tin
Vanilla aroma - 1 tbsp
Salt a pinch
Water - 1 1/2 cup

In a mixing bowl, add flour, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla baking powder, baking soda and salt. Now add egg white, condensed milk cream,vanilla aroma and mix well until you get a batter of pouring consistency. Pour into greased cake pans of different shapes and sizes of your choice (let the batter be slightly more than half, never 3/4th or full). Bake at 180 degrees for 30-35min. Insert a toothpick to check if it comes out clean ( if any particles sticks to the toothpick, bake for a little longer and check). Cool and serve.

See that the batter is not too thick or too thin. If the batter is too thick, the cake will be too hard, if its too thin, then it would be hard to get the desired shape.
