A very quick chocolate cake
There are many reasons why I like reading blogs, but one particular reason is reading other blogs about food and recipes. I like to find recipes that others have tried and tested and know that work!! Saves me the hassle! So, thanks Sandy for your chocolate cake, it was fast to make, moist and ever so yummy. This would be perfect for a beginner to make and being so fast, one to make if unexpected visitors were on their way.
Like all recipes, I make changes (sorry Sandy) and I did it to this one too. Do check Sandy's recipe so the next bit makes more sense!! As I am not vegan I exchanged the water for milk and I added 1 egg (but to be honest it works quite well without an egg). If you do add 1 egg, reduce your milk by just a little so you don't end up with more liquid. I also didn't add any vinegar. As I didn't have any wholemeal flour, I just used plain flour - worked just as well. Shows you that these sorts of recipes are quite adaptable.
|I cooked the cake in my brownie tin, worked very well.|
|Because I wanted to use my "stir stik" gadget (which looks like it has been dipped in paint) I decided to ice my chocolate cake.|
|And yes, I did enjoy some for afternoon tea - very moist thanks to the apple.|
