Chocolate cake
« on: September 14, 2007, 08:30:19 pm »
Ok, ok, so I cheated a bit. However, it was worth it!
I took a packet mix of Wrights chocolate fudge cake http://www.wrightsflour.co.uk/en-GB/products.aspx
and grated a 45 g bar of 45% dark chocolate into the mix. Once whisked and poured into the cake tin I pushed a Lindt Lindor Dark into the middle of the mix and baked.

Absolutely delicious with a crispy edged top and a moist (ooer) inner with the chocolate spread throughout.
9/10.
I am away for my FIFTH piece of the evening.

1 pound a bag in Aldi and I have a carrot cake mix awaiting my attention next.
My boys have suggested adding turnip (!) to the carrot cake mix as they like the way turnip makes them fart.

Not necessarily - if there's no picture, you won't be disappointed if it goes wrong LOL
Who needs karma when you know you're great already?

My cooking always turns out <EM>exactly</EM> like the picture.<img src="http://www.chocolatereview.co.uk/chocforum/smileys/smiley2.gif" height="17" width="17" border="0" align="absmiddle" alt="Wink" />


I bought a recipe book, with the hardest to make chocolate cake being the recipe I decided to try first.
Imagine my surprise when, despite concerns it would go horribly wrong, it looked better and neater than the picture!
I was so proud, I even took a picture! Sadly I had an accident with the mobile that had the pictures on (it had other cakes too [one without chocolate!]. I accidently threw the phone in the bin - but it's not as daft as it sounds (I hope!).

I was charging my phone, with it resting on the couch arm. Later, I had something in my hand, can't remember what, but it was small. Anyway, I dropped it and it went under the couch, so I lifted the couch up, but as I did so, the phone flew across the room. I picked it up. I then took the bag out of my watebasket/bin in the living room to put in the chute (I live in flats). However, after searching everywhere in the living room, every nook and cranny, I realised the phone had gone into the wastebasket! And I had thrown the bag out of it down the chute. And we don't have access to where the chute goes. So I've lost my cakey goodness pictures.  :'(

That sounds a terrible mishap you had with your chocolate chute!

At least it wasn't the actual cake that went down the chute.

Could have been a lot worse if you had a cat.
