Happy Sunday erbody! I hope you’ve had a good week! I’m so excited to get back to work tomorrow! I need something to keep me out of trouble and it’s good to wake up to a purpose and not one you make up for yourself for the day😏 Woaw! I’m jumping to my next post already! Let me get back to what I have planned for you today!
Ok, I’ve been waiting for the perfect recipe to share with you, so part 3 of this series took longer than anticipated – sorry! But, don’t worry, Winter is technically not over yet so the timing is still in place!
I’m pretty confident in the kitchen and I enjoy cooking. Baking, on the other hand, is trickier for me, or rather, I am less practiced at it. I was on tea duty at church today and I thought I would make something from scratch instead of buying ready made baked goods like I normally do. Also, my friend Kelly (you remember my dinner hosting Kelly, right?) baked a cake for Stacey’s birthday and she swore to me that it is super easy to bake! I was sold and today, I bring you the recipe!
Kelly’s Chocolate Cake
1 1/2 cup sugar
4 large eggs
11/2 cup self raising flour
1/2 cup coco
1 tsp baking powder
8th of 500 g Margarine
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup milk
1. Preheat Oven to 180 degrees.
2.Beat eggs and sugar until sugar is dissolved and well mixed.
3. Sift dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
4. Melt margarine, milk and water in a pot.
5. Mix egg/sugar mix with dry ingredients. Stir until batter is smooth. Add vanilla essence.
6. Add liquid mixture. Stir until smooth.
7. Grease baking pan with margarine and sprinkle a little flour over it. You can also use spray and cook and line the pan with paper.
8. Pour mixture in pan and bake for 25 -35 min.
But, wait. There’s more…
Since I’m new to baking I decided to keep the icing very simple:
Warm a can of caramel in a pot to “cement” the two cakes and drizzle over the top and sides. You can also melt a slab of plain chocolate with some cream and drizzle over the top.
Well, there you have it! I think it turned out great and many yummy noises were made! A huge thank you to my friend Kelly for sharing the recipe!
I’m so excited for Wednesday! I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine blogger award! I haven’t been nominated in a while! have an awesome week, erbody😘
