PREPARATION:

  • I have made this cake in pressure cooker , you can even bake it in oven.
  • Pre heat the pressure cooker with salt spread at the bottom and lid just covered.

  • First we need to take all the dry ingredients in a bowl one by one.
  • First goes the all purpose flour, then the baking powder, cocoa powder, chocolate powder and finally baking soda. Just give a mix and keep aside.
  • Now we are going to mix the wet ingredients.
  • In another bowl add melted butter and whisk it with a hand whisker or electric whisker.
  • To this add powder sugar and whisk well.
  • Add milk and condensed milk and mix . Do not add the milk altogether. Initially add half milk and see if the consistency is ok if not you can add more.
  • Now add salt and vanilla essence and whisk properly .
  • Add the dry ingredients mix that we have kept aside to this partly and whisk it combining all the ingredients.
  • Once its whisked well, grease a cake tray with butter or oil.
  • Pour the batter into the tray.
  • Keep a stand on to the spread salt inside the cooker.
  • Keep the cake tray on this stand.
  • Now close the lid of the cooker but without the whistle.
  • Cook on medium to low flame for 40 mins.
  • After 40 mins switch off the flame and with the help of a toothpick check if the cake is cooked properly. ( when you insert and take the toothpick out it should be clean without any batter sticking to it.)
  • Let the cake cool for 10 to 15 mins before removing from the try.

FOR THE CHOCOLATE GANACHE:

  • In a bowl add whipped cream and dark chocolate pieces , either microwave or heat it for 30 secs.
  • Now whisk it well till it becomes smooth and fluffy.
  • Keep it for 5 mins.
  • Keep the cake on top of a plate.
  • Pour the chocolate ganache on top of the cake so that it spreads evenly to all sides.
  • Decorate it with choco chips , grated chocolate and sprinkles.
  • Refrigerate the cake for sometime before serving.
