My mom doesnt go gaga over cakes and cookies. Not that i do. But then, i made them because my mom s like this cake. A lil sweet, a lil sour, a lil bitter and a lil salty. All in the right amounts. That you simply cant ignore any of the bits and yet you will get a taste of every bit of flavor there s in the cake. All moms are like that in their own way. And we dont need a day to celebrate motherhood. We just need to make the time.

( The original recipe calls for buttermilk. But i replaced it with yoghurt and it worked like a charm. The cakes were moist, soft and lovely. They rose beautifully too.In case you want to use buttermilk, use 6 tbsp of it instead of the yoghurt. You can frost these with whipped cream or cream cheese or even some dulce de leche.)
What You Need?
Flour 3/4 cup spooned and levelled
Sugar 3/4 cup powdered
Butter 3 tbsp melted
Egg white from a large egg
Thick fresh yoghurt whisked 6 tbsp
Baking powder 1 tsp
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
Cocoa powder 6 tbsp
Hot water 3 tbsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Muffin cups for lining the tray
How To Make It?
Preheat the oven to 180 c.
In a mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder along with the sugar and combine well. I sieved this twice. Set aside.
Now, combine the cocoa and hot water to make a thick paste.
In another bowl, add the melted butter, cocoa paste, yoghurt, egg white and egg and whisk until just combined.
Now add the flour mixture to this cocoa mixture and slowly combine until well incorporated. You can do this in an electric mixer on low speed for about 2 mins.
Spoon about 2 tbsp of batter in to each muffin cup.
Bake for 20 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Let it cool on a wire rack completely before removing them.
Once cooled, enjoy them with a scoop of ice cream or eat them up as they are.
