Much awaited long weekend was over with lots of eating. The amount of food which I had over the weekend needs detoxification for at least 1 week. So I started eating salads till yesterday night. Y'day night want to indulge something sweet so tried this recipe which I was planning to do for quite some time.
All my friends knows I am not a big fan of chocolate. If you keep a box of chocolates in front of me it will just stay as it is for many weeks. But once in a while I would love to have a small piece of chocolate cake topped with ice cream or drizzled with caramel sauce. A small bite of sweet cake topped with salty sweet caramel sauce is heaven in your mouth.
Here is the recipe for the heavenly piece of bite: (Adapted from Hobby and more with slight variations. )
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips(vegan)
1tbsp cocoa powder
1/4cup grounded walnuts (I grounded to fine coarse (not too coarse not too fine))
1tsp baking powder
1/4 cup Dark brown sugar
1/4 cup sunflower oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup Almond milk
1tbsp instant coffee powder
1tsp vanilla extract
1tsp apple cider vinegar
2tbsp flax meal
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup almond milk (Increase if sauce feels too thick)
1/2 tsp oil
1/8 tsp sea salt
Preparation: In a sauce pan add all the ingredients over medium heat until combined. Increase the heat to max for 2 mts once you see bubbles turn off the heat and let it cool. If the sauce becomes too thick after it cooled add milk and follow the same process(first cook on medium and 1 mt on high heat) .
You can use this sauce on cakes, ice creams or just have it as it is :)
Pre heat oven to 350 degree F. Grease 8inch or 9 inch pan.
Mix all we ingredients and warm in microwave for 1 minute. Sieve all the flours and mix all the dry in a separate bowl. Now slowly add wet to dry and mix well. Pour batter in greased pan and bake for 18 mts or until tooth pick comes clean when inserted in the center of the cake.
Cool completely on a rack and cut in desired shape. Before serving drizzle salty sweet caramel sauce and serve. I am 100% sure once u have the first bite u will feel like you are in heaven.
