Walnut Choclate Cake

It is the end of the month so here is a treat I made for me after some low cal stuff. This is a light cup cake when dunked in cold milk gives the brownie a run. Its very simple to make.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup semolina
1 1/2 cup powder sugar
4 tablespoons drinking chocolate
2 tables spoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup walnuts
1 cup curds
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons ghee/ butter
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon soda bicarbonate
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 teaspoon salt
To begin in a small bowl mix the semolina with curds and soda bicarbonate. This will make the semolina fluffy when baked. Meanwhile combine all dry items like all purpose flour, drinking chocolate, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and sieve to aerate them. Keep aside.
In a large bowl beat the ghee/ butter with sugar till light and fluffy. To this slowly add the aerated dry items mixed with flour. Mix gently in circular clockwise motion to get a smooth batter. Add the curd soaked semolina and stir slowly to get homogeneous mix. Now pour in the milk and mix well. The batter now should be nice pouring consistency. Pre heat oven for 10 mins at 190 deg cel.
Get the paper cups ready by greasing them and dusting them with flour. Just before you fill them up coat the walnuts pieces with flour so that they don't sink to the bottom and mix with the batter. Now fill the cups only to half capacity. Line them up in a tray and bake for 20 mins or till you get a slight crust on the top.
Walnut Chocolate Cake when still warm serve with cold milk. Dunking is the right thing to do. Shoo away any distraction and enjoy!
