FAQs?

Can we use chocolate instead of cocoa powder?

Yes, chocolate can be used in the cake sponge as well as for icing but the cocoa powder is lightweight and delicious enough to give your dessert all the chocolaty feels.

Do we use cream in this recipe?

No, e do not use any kind of creams like sour cream or white cream in this recipe neither in the batter nor in the icing. The cake is a mud cake so we prefer to use chocolate-based ingredients. But to make the cake more tender you can use sour cream.
