I have once tried to bake a brownie with the ready made packets available in the market. I somehow couldn’t get the desired output, the brownie got burnt πŸ™‚ I guess I didn’t follow the correct instructions. I lost interest in baking and for pastry I always go to the bakery and buy. But when I see so many people giving such lovely cakes, muffins, pies, etc I totally wanted to do it myself from scratch.

As this is my first baking experience from scratch , was a little confused whether to use All purpose flour or Wheat flour. I have heard and read that All purpose flour consumption must be reduced in our daily routine. SoΒ I did not want to make the cake with All purpose flour, to give a bit of change as I usually do πŸ˜› I tried every ingredient with low fat items. At the same time I got reviews that whole wheat flour might give hard cakes. Then I finally decided, let give it a try with wheat flour Guess what it turned out so Yummy! I couldn’t stop eating the cake πŸ˜€ Here I am getting into Fiesta Friday #20

This does have eggs πŸ™‚ I have used brown eggs.

Now bake it for 35 mins. I first tried 30 mins, but when I checked with tooth pick, I couldnt get it clear. So baked for 5 more mins. This time the toothpick came out clear πŸ˜€ Yay!

Cool it down for 30 mins. After coolingΒ transfer cake to a tray.

For the topping, heat a pan and put the chocolate chips, butter and heat it together. Once they get melted cover the cake with this topping. Cake is done πŸ˜€ Yay! I could get such a lovely cake specially with wheat flour. It was not at all hard. May be not too soft as all purpose flour. But this was yummy πŸ™‚
