Can it get easier than this? :-)

Recipe -
(source: Kailas Kitchen, my instinct! ☺)

Ingredients -
All purpose (refined) flour/ Maida - 125 grams (1 cup)
Powdered / Confectioners' Sugar - 1 cup (or as per taste)
Curd - 2 tablespoons
Milk - 1/2 cup / as per requirement

Cocoa Powder - 1-2 tablespoons
Baking Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Baking / Cooking Soda - soda-bicarb - 1/2 teaspoon

Method -
1: Sieve together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder & baking powder.
* Sieving the flour mixture 2-3 times gives a good texture to the final cake.
2. Mix together soda-bi-carb / baking soda & curd well & keep aside.
3. Heat 1/4 cup water. Combine the butter and ¼ cup of hot water in another bowl and whisk well.
4. Add the flour mix & blend well.

5. Add the curd-baking soda mix & blend again.
