I not only enjoy eating food of different varieties, but also love cooking and baking. Therefore, I keep trying my hand at preparing different types of cuisines at home. I am basically a very creative person and I’ve always had a knack for cooking. Cooking is actually the art of imagination and presentation. The food we cook should not be only tasty, but also presentable.
Everyone in my family is fond of cakes and cookies. Since it’s my brother’s birthday next week, so I have planned to bake a chocolate truffle cake for the occasion. I really want to surprise him by making his favourite cake and that too on his birthday. In order to learn the process and methods of cake-making, I have not only watched YouTube videos but have also attended some short term cooking classes as well.
The recipe of making a chocolate truffle cake is very simple. In a large saucepan, I will cook the milk, butter and chocolate over low heat until melted. I will remove the liquid mixture from the heat and will keep it aside for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, I will preheat the oven to 350°. Then, I will mix all purpose flour, sugar, baking soda and salt to the liquid mixture in a large bowl. After that, I will blend the mixture until it becomes smooth. Then, the batter will be transferred to a round and greased baking pan and will be baked for about 30 minutes in the oven.
Once it is baked I will spread ganache over top and sides of cake. I hope with this small gesture of mine, I will be able to bring a smile on my brother’s face.
