This Black Forest Cake is not only exotic to look at but is healthy too as is made with wheat flour & brown sugar.
Preheat oven at 180 degrees C. Grease a 7" cake pan and dust it with flour. Keep it aside.
Sift together wheat flour, corn flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt at least 2 to 3 times. Sifting incorporates air in the dry mix thus making it light which in turn makes the cake light.
In a big bowl, take curd, oil, brown sugar, and vanilla essence and beat it for 4 to 5 minutes till creamy and the sugar is dissolved fully.
Add dry mix into the wet mix in 2 or 3 instalments using cut and fold method.
Adjust consistency by adding milk. You need ribbon-like consistency. The quantity of milk would vary depending upon flour and the curd used. Lastly add vinegar/lemon juice, give a final mix and put the batter in cake pan.
Take out the cake. Level it by removing the cracked/domed surface. Keep these trimmings as these will be used in decorating the cake. Now, divide it into 3 parts. For this, put a mark along the edges with a knife all around the cake. Then, separate it using a thread.
Cover it with the whipped cream.
Finally put the third layer.
Now cover the whole cake with whipped cream. This is called crumb coat. Do not try to get finishing at this stage. Once the cake is covered with cream, keep it in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.
