Eggless Black Forest Cake




Ingredients:

Self rising flour.........................1 1/2 cup

Cocoa powder..........................1/2 cup
Baking powder.........................3 tsp
Condensed milk........................1 can
Warm Milk..............................3/4 cup
Melted butter...........................1/4 cup
Whip cream.............................3 cup
Vanilla extract..........................1/2 tsp
Confectioner sugar.....................2 Tbsp
Chocolate shaving......................1 cup
Cherries in syrup .......................1 cup

Method:


For the Chocolate cake:




1. Preheat oven on 380 degree F.

2. Sift all the dry ingredients ( flour, cocoa powder, baking powder) well.
3. In another bowl mix all the wet ingredients ( condensed milk, melted butter, warm milk) nicely.
4. Now gradually add flour mixture in it and fold it with spoon in one direction. DO NOT USE  ELECTRIC BLENDER. 
5.  Take a cake pan and grease with oil and dust with little bit of flour or you can use parchment paper as a liner.
6. Pour mixture into the pan and bake on 380 degree for 12-15 min. Check with knife or toothpick. If it comes out clean then your cake is ready.
7.Take out the cake on a cooling rack. Let it rest for 5 minutes. Run a small knife or metal spatula around the sides of the pans and invert cakes onto lightly greased racks. Remove parchment paper. Reinvent cakes onto cooling rack. Let cool for at least 1 1/2 hours or until completely cooled.
8. Soak the cake nicely with spoon by applying syrup from cherry bottle ( you can also use sugar syrup instead)

For frosting:


1. Chill the bowl and whisk attachment of a stand mixer for 20 min. in the refrigerator or 5 min. in the freezer. 
2.Pour the heavy cream into the bowl and whisk on medium-high speed until it just starts to thicken. Slow the speed down to medium and gradually pour in the sugar. Continue to whisk until soft peaks form.
3. Add the vanilla extract and continue to whisk by hand until the cream is smooth, and stiff peaks form (the cream will stand up straight when the whisk is raised).


Assemble the cake:




Take one part of the cake and apply thick layer of  whip frosting. Add cherries on the top and gently put another layer of cake. Now cover the whole cake with whip frosting and add chocolate shavings on all the sides. Now take whip frosting in piping bag with star nozzle and make rounds on the cake and decorate with cherries.

Bun / Pav / Dinner Roll





Ingredients:

All purpose flour............................2 cups
Wheat flour..................................1 cup
Oil..............................................3 tbsp
Dry Yeast ................................... 1 tbsp
Sugar...........................................2 tbsp
Warm Milk....................................1 1/2 cup ( plus 1/4 cup milk for brushing)



Method:

1. In a cup mix warm milk ( make sure not to over heat the milk other wise it will kill yeast)  and sugar and mix it very well. Now add yeast in the milk and mix it very gently,
2. In a bowl mix all purpose flour, wheat flour and salt and mix it very well.
3. Add Oil and yeast mixture in flour and knead it very well. If it sticks to your hand then apply some oil on your palm.
4. Apply some oil on the dough. Cover the bowl with damp cloth and keep it aside for an hour in a warm place to rise.  ( I generally prefer to put in my oven with light on)
5. After an hour the dough should rise in double. Now punch the dough lightly and knead the dough for 3-4 mins.
6. Make small balls out of the dough and place the balls on the baking sheet layered with parchment paper.
( or prepare baking sheet by applying some oil and dust with flour)
While  placing buns on the baking sheet, make sure to leave 2 inch space in between each balls.
7. Apply some milk with brush on all the balls and cover the baking sheet with damp cloth and let it rise for 45 min in a warm place.
8. After rising the buns will rise little bit. Now, brush with milk on each bun again and bake in the oven for 15-20 min for 375 degree F. or until it will turn golden brown on the top.
9. After bun is baked take it out from baking tray, apply butter on the surface and let it cool down for 10 mins.
