The key making quick and crispy chocolate cake at home are:
- I use kadai to bake a cake in this recipe is just an alternative to the traditional baking option. if you are comfortable or have an oven you can bake it for 30-40 mins at 180 degrees. you may have to check after that and bake it for additional 5-10 mins.
- the frosting can be done as per your preference. I like the pouring chocolate glaze on top of the baked cake as it is easy and also satisfying. you may go with traditional chocolate or even vanilla flavor foresing or you can immediately serve after baking.
