Let’s Bake

After all those banana cakes, I needed to bake something new so I searched for a good chocolate cake recipe. This recipe has a high number of reviews, mostly positive, so I gave it a whirl.

The first step is to dissolve cocoa in boiling water to produce this delicious mixture.

Once the sugar, butter and eggs are mixed together, the chocolate mixture is folded in, alternating with the flour.

The batter fitted perfectly into my springform pan (well greased and lined).

And came out looking like this! (I don't have any testers or skewers so used a cocktail umbrella!)

And a huge slice or two to make sure it was OK. Mmm... super yummy, chocolatey, moist with a wonderful texture. I don't think it needs any icing but maybe some tart raspberries and whipped cream.
