The ChocoNut Donut Cake

The ChocoNut Donut Cake

It is my pleasure to share "THE CHOCONUT DONUT CAKE" because this cake is my own recipe.The name donut came, as per the shape. I wanted my cake to be moist and soft and wanted it to give a melting feeling while having it. I did a small experimentation on it. Hurrah!!!! I was successful. So I made the cake to welcome our New Year 2014.

    Batter shouldn't be too light or too thick. Finally add the chopped nuts. Stir it.{Note: If the batter is watery, the nuts will settle at the bottom. So try to maintain the consistency of the batter}.

    Pour the batter to the cake tin. Place the tin in the middle rack for about 40 min in the oven at 180 deg Fahrenheit. After 40 - 45 min, pierce with a fork or skewer to see if any cake sticks onto to it. If nothing sticks, then the cake is ready.
