(I don't use cocoa powder in this recipe but instead I use real dark chocolate and also use whole wheat flour. This brings the recipe different. Yet the cake was very soft, moist and tasty!!!)
4 large eggs
3/4 cup (125 grams) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 stick (100 grams) butter
1 cup (128 grams) all-purpose flour ( I used 3/4 cup of wheat flour and 1/4 cup of maida.)
4.4 oz (125 grams) dark chocolate
Beat the 4 eggs with the sugar, using an egg beater. Till become double in volume, fluffy. This is an important step to make the cake moist!
Melt the butter (either in the microwave or in a sauce pan).Then add the butter into the egg mixture. Add vanilla extract. Sift the flour with a pinch of salt and baking powder, and add over the egg mixture and gently fold all the ingredients together using a spatula, until well mixed. Split the batter equally, into 2 separate bowls.
Melt the dark chocolate and add the chocolate to one portion of the batter.Mix well. ( you can also add white chocolate to the other portion for the richness of the cake.)
Prepare the cake pan. First pour half of the white batter in the pan. Then cover it with the entire dark chocolate batter, spread evently. Finally pour the rest of the white batter on top of the chocolate batter.
Insert the knife in the batter and move it around to create swirles.
Bake the cake in 180 C for around 45 minutes or until it is done.
