This is a yummy and chocolaty dessert which is exactly not a cake nor a chocolate. I would love to call it as a "Chocolaty Halwa". Taste amazing. The top portion is crunchy while the down portion is soft and smooth like a halwa.
This is actually an experiment which I did and turned out to be wonderful. The mixing of the batter has to be done fast, as there is a tendency of the chocolate to harden. So before starting to make this dish, prepare your tin, preheat your oven and then start doing the mixing.
87 gms White Chocolate
57 gms Butter (in room temperature)
50 gms Sugar (powdered)
1/4 tsp Vanilla essence
1/4 tsp Baking powder
65 gms Maida/All purpose flour
50 gms Almonds and cashew nuts (chopped)
- Sieve maida and baking powder together and keep this aside.
- Prepare the cake tin by spreading a butter paper in it and grease it using butter.
- Chop white chocolate into small pieces and put it in a microwave safe bowl.
- Microwave - power HIGH for 1 minute.
- Mix well using a steel spoon till it becomes a smooth paste with no lumps.
- Into the chocolate, add butter and mix well. Now add sugar and using an electric hand beater, beat it till the sugar is completely dissolved. ( as we are adding powdered sugar, it will take only 1 minute)
- Now add egg and vanilla essence. Beat again.
- Preheat oven in convection mode at 180 degree Celsius.
- Add maida+baking powder mixture and mix using a wooden spoon or beater.
- Add some of the chopped nuts in the batter and mix again.
- Pour the batter into the prepared tin. Sprinkle the rest of the chopped nuts and some small pieces of white chocolate on top.
- Place it in the preheated oven for about 30 - 40 minutes. When the top portion becomes golden brown colour, take out from the oven and let it cool for sometime.
- When it is completely cooled, turn the cake tin upside down and gently peel off the butter paper from it.
- You will see that the down portion will not be set completely, don't panic, it is the way we want.
- Cut it into pieces and serve.
I turned one piece of this chocolaty halwa upside down, so that you can see the texture....doesn't it look soft and smooth....
