Kenstar Infograph Rum Raisin Chocolate Cake Recipe
Method of Preparation

Step 01:
Keep raisins and rum mixed in a bowl for half an hour.
Step 02:
Preheat your Kenstar OTG to 160℃, and grease the cake pan with butter or oil.
Step 03:
In a bowl, add butter, vanilla, and sugar. Beat the ingredients so that it becomes a thick and pale paste.
Step 04:
Add eggs to the bowl one at a time. Beat a little after adding each egg.
Step 05:
Add flour, cocoa powder, and a little salt to the bowl through a sieve and mix the ingredients.
Step 06:
Take 1/3 part of the flour mixture in a mixer, and add the half cup of buttermilk. Beat the mixture at low and medium speeds until the mixture becomes smooth.
Step 07:
Drain the raisins soaked in the rum, and add 2/3rd of the raisins to the batter. Pour the batter into the greased pan.
Step 08:
Bake the cake in the Kenstar OTG for around 40 minutes. Check if the cake is completely baked by placing a skewer in it; make sure it comes out with some moist crumbs.
Step 09:
Once the cake is ready, remove the cake from the Kenstar OTG and cool it for 10 minutes.

Steps to make Rum Caramel

Step 01:
Add ¾ cup of sugar to a saucepan, add two tablespoons of water, and place the pan on medium heat. Once it boils, simmer it for 8 minutes on a low flame, until the colour changes to golden.
Step 02:
Add ¾ cup of cream and a little salt to the pan. Keep stirring the ingredients until the mixture becomes smooth.
Step 03:
Cool it a little before adding 2 tablespoons of rum, and then keep it to the side to cool it completely.

Steps to make cinnamon icing

Step 01:
Add 500 gm cream cheese and 50 gm butter in a bowl, and then whisk the mixture to make it light and fluffy.
Step 02:
Whisk with medium speed and add a cup of icing sugar, a tablespoon of rum, and a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Steps for topping

Step 01:
Cut the cake into two halves. Brush both the parts with the rum leftover from the soaked raisins.
Step 02:
Spread 1/4th part of icing over one half of the cake. Now, place the second half of the cake and spread the remaining icing over it.
Step 03:
Finally, drizzle the caramel and sprinkle the remaining raisins.

That is all—your rum raisin chocolate cake is ready!
