Last sunday i desperately wanted to prepare black forest at home. But we didn't have proper glassware for baking cake and i wanted to prepare it in the nice new glassware. So at around 12noon we started with the search for the glassware. It was 10pm when we actually got the stuff after going to every other shop. Weekdays had been little busy so i couldn't try my hands on the cake during week.. So today the first thing i did after the breakfast was preparing the cake.. Now comes the flop part, when i was ready with two cakes, I had put the cream on them and cream was so thin that it just slipped from the cake. So it was ajoy who kept on adding the cream in the dish on the cake and we came up with this delicious cake :)

Sinking Titanic
3/4 cup Maida
2 spoon Coca powder
1 spoon Baking powder
1/4 spoon Eating Soda
1/2 cup + 4 spoon powdered Sugar
1/4 cup Milk
1 spoon butter
2 Eggs
1/4 spoon Vanilla Essence
1/2 cup Fresh Cream
1 medium sized Cadbury bar
1/4 cup tinned cherries
2 spoon cherry syrup
A pinch of Salt

  • Sieve maida, coca powder, baking powder eating soda and salt together around 8-10 times to form properly mixed flour
  • Heat milk in a pot, when it boils mix butter with it and keep aside
  • Prepare the pan for baking the cake by coating it with butter and puting a butter paper on it
  • Heat the oven to 200C
  • Now separate the egg white and yellows
  • Beat the egg white till it thickens
  • In a egg yolk, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar a spoon at a time till sugar is completely mixed with the yolk
  • Now mix the maida flour sieved earlier with this, spoon by spoon and then vanilla essence.
  • Add egg white and mix well
  • Add milk and butter mixture to this and mix well
  • Add this mixture to the pan that was earlier prepared for baking
  • Bake the cake in microwave + convection mode at 180W and 180C for 15 minutes
  • Keep aside for cooling
  • Mix the cream and 4 spoon sugar well
  • Grate the Cadbury bar and keep aside
  • Cut the cake into half
  • Spread the syrup on both the halves
  • Spread half of the cream, half of cherries and half of grated chocolate on one portion of the cake
  • Keep the other portion of the cake on top of it and spread remaining cream, grated chocolate and cherries on top of it
  • Cream might flow down into the dish, put it back on the cake till cake is completely sinked in the cream

I had prepared oval shape cake so the final version looked like sinking boat.
Also While mixing the egg white and milk, mix it slowly and with care.
