All purpose flour-1 cup
Cocoa powder-5 table spoons
Caster Sugar- 1 cup
I used vegetable oil- 1/2 cup
Baking soda-1 teaspoon
baking powder-1/2 teaspoon
Milk-1/4 cup (room temperature)
Vanilla extract- 1 teaspoon
Almond flakes for decoration
Pre-heat the oven to 180C. The procedure is actually very simple. You start with mixing all the dry ingredients together as in, the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and caster sugar
Mix well and now add the other ingredients, oil, milk , yogurt and vanilla essence, use an electric beater, that way the mixing is much better that way.
Line a spring form cake pan with a parchment paper, pour the batter in to the pan, tap it a few times so that it spreads evenly. Sprinkle almond flakes on the top and bake for 30 mins and check with a toothpick in between and when it cokes out clean, the cake is ready.
Let it cook on a wire rack , once it is cool sprinkle icing sugar. cake is ready.
