Homemade Chocolate Cake

Ingredients :

For the cake
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup curds
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup refined oil
1 2/3 cup maida (refined flour)
2/3 cup cocoa
2-3 drops vanilla essence
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp meeta soda ...it is a white coloured powd(NOT baking soda)

For the add ons :
500 ml whisky or rum
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup cream
1 slab or rich dark chocolate
Marinate the rasins in whisky/ rum
Whip the cream and dark chocolate together in a pan on the flame to create a gooey chocolate.

What next ?
Blend all ingredients meant "for the cake" (NOT the add ons) together in a blender. Grease a baking dish, and bake in oven at ~180 deg for 45 mins to an hour. Check intermittently to see if baked.

To serve
Cut the cake into two parts horizontally. Soak each part in whisky which contains the raisins marinated overnite. Then add the gooey chocolate on one part. Put the two parts together and then pour the balance gooey chocolate on the top.
Chill in freezer for a while.
Serve cold.
