                             I am very much  alive...yeah i know i might sound frightful. I meant to say i am very much alive in the blogosphere.
      Just lazy to open my blog and post what I have been cooking these days .But today this creation of mine not  exactly  mine but  is a borrowed recipe with little minor changes of one fellow blogger ,who is an amazing cook and a blogger.
I have not followed the recipe exactly but made few minor changes as per my liking and the result was amazing!


Atta (whole wheat flour)--> 1 cup
Corn flour -->1/4 cup
Butter --> 3 Tbsp
Olive Oil --> 5 Tbsp
Sugar --> 1/2 cup
Milk --> 1/2 cup
Lemonade -->1/2 cup
Vanilla essence --> 1/2 tsp
Colour --> few drops
Baking Soda --> 1/2 tsp plus 1/4 tsp
Salt --> little (optional)
Chocolate Chips --> handful


1)Preheat the oven @ 180 degree C or 375 degree F.
2)Take a large bowl add the melted butter, oil , sugar and combine the sugar till it is completely melted. Then add the lemonade and milk and mix well.
3)In another  bowl shift atta ,corn flour, baking soda and little salt.
4)Fold the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients slowly .Add food colour ,vanilla essence and the chocolate chips and mix gently for a few seconds.
5)Bake for 35-40 mins at 180 degree C or 375 degree F till done.

               For every  1 cup of atta  use 1/4 tsp of  baking soda. The original recipe called for baking powder but since i was short of  it, i substituted it for 1/4 tsp  of Baking soda for every one cup. So ended up adding 1/4 tsp and little pinch along with the original recipe's requirement of  1/2 tsp of baking soda.

    The cake came out quite spongy  even though i used atta and smelt yummy and was delicious.
    This recipe is surely a keeper.
