Chocolate Chip Praline Cake

Happy Diwali bakers!! Diwali is a festival of happiness ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s such a lovely time of the year. The air is crisp and cooler, all the houses are lit up beautifully, we meet relatives and oldย  friends and not to forget the Big Diwali Parties!! We have a beautiful terrace with a huge bar and barbecue. Dad loves to host dinners there. And of courseย  we need a dessert later ๐Ÿ˜€

I usually do cupcakes or layer cakes for such parties. They not only look gorgeous on the table but are a delight for everyone. This time I was in a hurry and needed something that doesn’t require a frosting ๐Ÿ˜›

Can’t tell you how much it was loved by all the guests! Everyone was raving about it. It’s definitely going to be among my favorites.

Rich and heavenly, and definitely high on calories ๐Ÿ˜€ But apt for this time of the year ๐Ÿ™‚ You can definitely afford extra calories during Diwali. Theย  Chocolate Chip Praline Cake is a quick recipe. Just make some caramel and pour in the baking tin. Spread your favorite nuts and top with a dense cake batter. I did a vanilla cake with chocolate chips, but a dense and rich chocolate cake would be so sinful!! Be creative and definitely try this one and leave me a comment on how it turned out!!
