Devil's Food Chocolate Cake Anyone?

Oh my..oh my.. I've been so lazy in updating my blog lately. So many things to do. Even when I have the time I just couldn't find the words to start off my entry. Sigh...

OK, to cure my writers' block, I'll share with you this Devil's Food Chocolate Cake I made on My birthday(tak abes-abes pasal besday dia lagi???). Hahaha... sounds weird doesn't it - baking my own birthday cake but I absolutely barred my husband from buying me any cake. Well, first of all, there are not too many choices of nice cakes over here in Dublin and secondly, I would prefer to try and experiment with new recipes that I found on blogs and on the web. So, here's me baking a cake myself instead.

Looks so ugly but yet tastes so lovely. Ahaks!


I took the recipe from Kak Ayu's blog (Ohhh... kek kek coklat dia sedap2 belaka). Somehow, at the end of mixing the ingredients the batter wasn't thick enough and I just realised that I accidentally used the wrong cups to measure the water and butter milk. I used one cup instead of half a cup of water  and half a cup of butter milk instead of a quarter of a cup. Urrrrghh... Not wanting to waste the mixture, I just gambled and added another batch of ingredients without following the proper instructions and did things the wrong way around like beating the butter and sugar first etc..etc... . Surprisingly, the cake turned out to be quite nice (ayat nak sedapkan hati) and so yummy and because of all the extra ingredients, bigger. All the better, of course. Ahaks.


What I like about this cake is that in between layers, there's the cream cheese frosting which makes it even tastier. Emmmm nyum...well you can try it yourself if you don't believe me.


I promised this will be the last entry about my birthday. After all, today is the last day of January and I'm turning 26 (like some people say) only once (or maybe twice!) in a life time. Hehehe... I just enjoyed my birthday so much.  Can't wait for next year. Eh but I just remembered that I didn't tell you guys what I got myself with my gift voucher yet??? Hehehe. Jeng...jeng...jeng...
