Vanilla cake with mocha pudding

           Happy Valentine's Day
"Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit." Kahlil Gibran

For this wonderful valentine's day I made a cake which was filled with love ( Vanilla Flavored Cake ) & affection ( Mocha Pudding ). Vanilla cake recipe was same as my previous post. But the pudding was borrowed from food network website.
I was just crossing fingers for the recipe to come out perfectly & it was just yummy....
In my husbands words "Itz very delicious..Reminded me the taste of my fav pudding in my uk days"


For Cake
11/2 cups of all purpose flour
11/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt 
2/3 cup sugar 
2 Large eggs @ room temperature 
3/4 cup unsalted butter melted
1/2 cup milk ( Used 2% fat milk)
2 tsp vanilla extract

For Pudding
4 Egg yolks 
2/3 Cup sugar
1/8 Tsp salt
2 Tbs corn flour
1 Cup milk ( 2% milk)
1/2 Cup black coffee
1 Tbs Vanilla extract
1/2 Cup choco chunks

Cake recipe
Preheat oven @ 350 degrees F.
Dry Ingredients
Sift all purpose flour & mix baking powder,baking soda,all purpose flour & salt together in a bowl. 
Wet Ingredients
In another bowl beat eggs & sugar together till the sugar has dissolved.Then add melted butter & Vanilla one after another to the same bowl & keep mixing it with a hand mixer.

Mix the dry & wet ingredients along with milk.Once the batter is ready grease a pan with butter & pour the cake batter init.
Place cake in oven and bake it @ 350 degrees F for 20mins or till the stick comes out clean. ( I used a tooth pik)
Once done cool it on a rack.  

In a bowl beat egg yolks,salt, sugar & corn flour to a smooth paste.Heat a bowl with milk,black coffee,vanilla extract & Choco pieces. Mix them till chocolate is melted & then slowly add the yolk mix to it. Keep mixing it till the pudding comes together. Refrigerate it for min of 1hr or over night. 

Later I used pudding as frosting to cake....
The leftover cake crumbs I arranged them in a cup with layers of pudding & njoyed it.... :)

1. Instead of butter you can use corn oil as a replacement. 
2. For more rich pudding replace 2% milk with whole milk or half creme & half milk.
