1.Seive all the dry ingredients and keep aside.
2.Then take all the dry ingredients in a food processor and add oil,a nd other wet ingredients and mix properly.
3.Then add vanilla extract and blend it.Here i have added coffee powder for extra richness of teh chocolate .Even vanilla also enhances the chocolate flavour and gives a rich colour to it.
4.Grease a baking pan with enough butter and then dust it with the flour and por the batter to it until it fills 3/4 of the pan.
5.Pop it ina 345 deg pre-heated oven for 45 mins or until the tooth prick pricked comes out clear.
6.Allow it to cool for 1 hrs.Then slice it into thin slices.
7.Layer it with cool whip and freshly grated chocolate
8.Make a thick layer of cool whip and drizzle it with chocolate grates and hot chocolate sauce forming strings.Fresh or canned cherries also can be added for the topping and even layering.
9.Tastes even better if chilled.
