Food blogging requires a lot of inspiration and motivation, once you are deep into it. And if you are a regular Indian food blogger one name that you should not miss from the community is of Srivalli Jetti from the Spicingyourlife and Cooking4allseasons

Today Valli celebrates her birthday and in an attempt to make it little special than usual, blogger marathon friends around the world have created this small ode...

Picking Valli's favorite dish is no brainer, having known her now for years- I know how weak she goes in her knees on seeing chocolate.

This recipe with double chocolate and a chocolate truffle topping is amazing for chocolate lovers....every bite has the chocolicious .....

Wish you a wonderful birthday Valli and keep inspiring and motivating us all way long....


1 1/4 cup sifted All Purpose Flour/ Maida

1/2 cup grated Dark chocolate
1/2 cup Cocoa powder

1/4 cup water
1/2 tspn baking soda
1 tspn baking powder
1 tspn vanilla extract

For chocolate truffle
1 cup dark chocolate 
1/4 cup milk chocolate
3/4 cup cream

1) For the chocolate truffle, heat the cream just until it starts scalding, do not let it boil. Switch off. Add the chocolate broken down into smaller pieces and let it stand for 2-3 min. If your truffle looks lesser glossy, then add a blob of butter or oil.

2) Now, in a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients - Flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda. Mix it well using a spoon of fork. Add the powdered sugar now and mix again. Set aside.

3) In another bowl, mix chocolate and oil. Microwave or use double boiler to melt the chocolate. 

4) Add the chocolate, buttermilk and water to the dry ingredients and using a fork, mix the batter in a vertical mixing action. Line the muffin tray with your choice of liners.
The batter will sticky and not runny.
Pour the batter using a spoon in the moulds.
