Friday. Yay. - Narcissism is Necessary

Friday. Yay.

I woke up this morning in time for Jamie Oliver’s cooking show and I got bitten by the baking bug. He was giving out this really simple chewy chocolate cake recipe and coincidentally, I have most of the ingredients needed. So, I baked a cake.

Twins.

Cake got the better of me even before I managed to snap a photo of it.

There are two because I didn’t want the cake to be too thick. Anyway, I think it’s pretty good, cause I already ate half of cake number one. I just had a piece from the fridge, oh my gawd the texture tasted like brownie, solid but chewy. Yum…

In case you like to know the recipe :

  • 200g of sugar and 200g of butter beaten till creamy.
  • Add 200gm of self-raising flour and beat again (I used ordinary flour and 2 teaspoon of baking powder).
  • Fold in 3 eggs.
  • Dissolve a couple of tablespoons of cocoa powder with water and add into the batter. (I used melted cooking chocolate instead).
  • Fold in almond flakes (which I didn’t) and chocolate chunks (which I did).
  • Pour into pan and bake for 20 mins at 180 degree celcius.

Thought I was going to bring the other one for the gang. Turned out Jaime’s celebrating her birthday in Bangsar tonight so I’m bringing the cake there instead.

I’ve opened a Multiply account. Go check it out :D

Who’s going to Zoukfest tomorrow? I am. Lets party!!!!!!!!!!!!

I nicked too much chocolate batter and ate too much chocolate cakes. ARGH. Gonna go workout now. Peace.
