Chocolate Cake

Cakes have always been my all time fav.My mom makes them very nicely even in a pressure cooker.Until my marriage I never entered kitchen[never got time:)] So I dint bother to learn it from her.Now that I spend half of my day in kitchen and have an oven I wanted to prepare it.I called her and had noted the recipe long back and prepared it.No wonder it came up to be a utter flop...We could eat it but not like cake but as a biscuit/rusk.Then I just left the plan of making it...
          After long I again felt to make it.This time I was more careful and finally I got a quality product...A very soft and spongy cake....Finally I did it..
Dear friends I wont be writing any tips for this as it is my first successful attempt.Next time when I prepare cake I would write the tips because I would start experimenting then :).

All purpose flour-1/2 cup
Baking Powder-3/4 tsp
Eggs-2 nd 1/2( lightly beaten)
Butter-1/2 cup(1 stick)melted
cocoa powder-3 tbsp
sugar powder-1 and 1/4 cup
vanilla extract-1/2 tsp

Method Of Preparation:
1. Mix the all purpose flour,baking powder and salt and keep aside.
2. Mix the butter and cocoa in a bowl and set aside.
3. Beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl.
4. Mix it along with cocoa mixture.
5. Sieve  over the flour and mix it along with the mixture.
6. Preheat Oven to 350F. Grease a cake pan with butter and dust it with little flour.Remove the extra flour after dusting.
7. Pour this mixture into the cake pan and bake for 20-30 minutes until risen.Insert a toothpick/skewer.If it comes out clear your cake is done.  Let it sit to cool.
8. Cut to desired sized piece and serve.
