Devilishly Moist Chocolate Cake ..... I Am A Baker!

Hi ya peeps! I just realised that it has been almost 2 months since I last updated my blog! urgghhh! Yes, I have been busy, very very busy! Things move in flashes when you work on your own! I am not complaining, but I realise that you achieve more when working on your own....baking ...the baking business is doing fine alhamdulillah....Mondays were usually my rest days, but I have busted that the past 3 weeks. Otherwise baking, err work starts on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and a bit on Sundays. I usually go out on Mondays, have lunches with my friends and stock up ingredients.

Have I become a millionaire!? Nope, but I am definitely happy now, I don't have to think to say that...Do I worry about my income...yeah a little bit, just a little bit, I put all faith on Him!....and the other best part is most of my customers become my friends...what more can you ask!?

I check my messages on Mondays too! But, of late I have not been trying new recipes, well, I have tried a few recipes but have not had the time to update them here. I have started my classes in September, there will be no classes in October, but there will be classes in November....hopefully in my new premise which I will be renting. Renovation works are now on the way.....and I can't wait to release new modules. It will be easier when I could decide on the timing and venue!

I have not resumed my mengaji classes since we left for raya puasa, the kenits Hajar and Muhammad have been down with chicken pox, so they were at home with me, and I was grounded!'s the recipe that I made in Ayer Baloi...please excuse the pictures, we couldn't wait till the ganache sets before we dug into the was super delicious....and I used Van Houten cocoa and blocks and some herscheys dark chocolate in the ganache. So, no excuses for not trying this recipe....

Ingredients the recipe belongs to Tish Boyle!

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cups cocoa powder
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 2/3 granulated sugar
1/3 cup (80 ml) corn oil
2 large eggs
1/3 cup (80 ml) milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup(240 ml) boiling water


Preheat your oven at 165C, prepare 3 9 inches round cake tins...I used a casserole bowl.
Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda , salt into a mixing bowl. Mix them on  low speed till well mixed. Add sugar. Add oil and mix on low speed till the mixture become crumbly. in a separate bowl mix eggs, milk and vanilla...add this mixture into the dry mixture until well blended. Still on low speed slowly pour boiling water, and scraping down the mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared pans.

Bake for about 40 minutes, let cool. and garnish with chocolate ganache.

For my chocolate ganache I boil 200g dairy whipping cream (at least 30% fat content) and pourt onto 200g dark chocolates. Set it to the consistency you wish, I just poured mine right away on the cake.

Enjoy enjoy enjoy!

Nite work this week begins tomorrow! Have a brilliant week!
