Rich Chocolate Almond Tea Cake


( Click image for enlarged view )

I wanted to prepare chocolate truffles but the chocolate seemed to be too rich with cocoa flavor with a mild bitter taste which didnt suit us so I modified it to make a rich chocolate cake.It came out very well and it is also my first chocolate cake !!

I was pleasantly surprised I didnt have to throw it away n could make another dish that balanced the bitterness of cocoa powder n its tasty too for chocolate lovers like my hubby.

Ingredients:
  • 5 oz unsweetened chocolate bar (Bakers Brand)
  • 1/2 cup grounded almond
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped almonds (optional)

Baking procedure

Break the chocolate into pieces n melt it with almond n vanilla extract in a bowl set over sauce pan of hot water. Stir until well blended. Now add butter to it n stir till it melts.

Mix all purpose flour with baking powder, baking soda n grounded almonds nicely.

In another bowl beat the eggs and sugar for 3 min with a hand blender with medium speed till it become fluffy.Then add oil,milk and again blend till it all mix nicely.Then chocolate sauce to it n stir with spatula.

Take the flour and slowly add to the above mixture and stir till it blends properly .This can done with hand blender or even with a spatula.

Pour it into a well graeased 9x5 inch loaf pan n bake for 30 min. check with a toothpick if it doesnt stick its ready.
