All Purpose Flour 1/4 cup
Whole Wheat Flour 3/4 cup
Baking Powder 1/2 teaspoon
Baking Soda 1 teaspoon
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder 6 tablespoons
Granulated Sugar 3/4 cup
Unsweetened Applesauce (you could use oil too) 1/2 cup
Milk 1/4 cup
Yogurt 1/4 cup
Preheat the oven to 325F. Lightly grease an 8-inch round cake pan and dust it with cocoa powder.
1.In a large bowl sift together the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder and sugar. Make a well.
2.Add all the wet ingredients one by one.
3.With an electric mixer, beat the mixture on low speed for 2-3 minutes until the dry and wet ingredients are well combined. Do not over beat it.
4.Pour the batter in the prepared pan. Tap the pan a couple of times so the batter is spread evenly and there are no air bubbles.And bake it for 25mins.
1. In a medium size bowl add the margarine, ovaltine (powdered sugar) and cocoa powder.
2.Add milk little by little and continue beating the mixture till you get a nice spreadable consistency. I used around 3 tablespoons of milk.
Spread on the cake and I used fresh cream on the sides of the cake too.
