This is my first chocolate cake actually.
I don’t really like baking because I like to improvise along the way. I learnt my lesson when I baked with extra flour and less sugar and more baking powder, not exactly according the recipe and I had horrible muffins, or biscuits or whatever you may call it. So I gave up long time ago. Until now. I came across little teochew post about a chocolate cake, one of my blogger friends who is an expert in cooking and baking (who is also a gorgeous mommy!), she wrote about how she came across this recipe at Times Online and her descriptions about the cake made me sit up and read more in-depth about it. I am dead serious!
So I tweeted her for extra guidance last week and yesterday, I got my first cake springform, ground almond, the dark chocolate bought from Seah St. and I had a go just now. I vowed to stick to the recipe as close as possible and asked my husband to help me beat the egg white.
This is it. After 41 minutes into baking (I was tempted to bake extra time because I saw it was still wet inside but my helper said that it is like that, the normal chocolate cake suppose to be soft inside while crisp on the outside. OKAY.) , it turned out to be my first and fabulous cake!
I am going to take this to my office to awe everyone. Haha… time to show off.
If you want to try it, please follow her recipe here. An awesome and out-of-this-world cake.
