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 🙂 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. So I did not want to make the cake with All purpose flour, to give a bit of change as I usually do 😛 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 😀 Here I am getting into Fiesta Friday #20
This does have eggs 🙂 I have used brown eggs.
Whole Wheat flour : 1 1/2 cup
Dark Brown Sugar:3/4 cup
Baking Powder : 2 teaspoons
Salt : 1 teaspoon
Brown Eggs : 2
Vanilla Extract : 1 tablespoon
Fat Free Milk : 1 cup
Butter : 1/2 cup
Fresh Blueberries : 1 cup
Chocolate Chip : 1/2 cup
Chocolate Chip : 1/4 cup
Butter : 1 tablespoon
First mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Whole wheat flour, dark brown sugar, baking powder, salt. Mix well using fork.
Next Mix all wet ingredients together. Milk, butter, eggs, vanilla extract, chocolate chip, 1/2 cup blueberry put all these in a blender and blend for 3 to 4 mins until all of them mix well.
Now mix the dry and wet ingredients together slowly. Preheat oven at 375 F
Grease baking tray generously with butter. Pour the 3/4 cake mix. Next put the remaining blueberries over this. Then cover it with the remaining 1/4 cup cake mix.
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 😀 Yay!
Cool it down for 30 mins. After cooling 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 😀 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 🙂
