Nearly Time for Chocolate Cake...


Yes that is right fellow chocoholics I feel like making a chocolate cake today. So I will share my favourite recipe with you all, in just one minute..

Tomorrow is the 11th of February here. As part of Lotus' Project Support Beauty in Nature. I think that I will do something that My grandfather did every time that he went for a walk. I will take a plastic bag with me and just pick up the rubbish that I find.. If you would like to participate in this project and would like a pretty button for your page. Just go and visit Lotus aka Sarcastic Mom and Join right in....


Chocolate Apple Cake...

500 g cooking apples (1 pound)
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 cups of self raising flour
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
125 g of butter (4 oz)
250 g of sugar (8 oz)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence


Peel and core the apples, slice them thickly, cook them with very little water. Meanwhile sift the cocoa and the flour together thoroughly and return to the sieve.Have the bicarbonate of soda ready measured out and grease a large, deep square cake tin.
Cream the butter with the sugar and the vanilla essence.
When the apples are cooked, remove from the heat and drain well.Add the bicarb of soda at once. While the mixture is still fizzing turn it into the creamed butter and sugar and beat thoroughly. sift in about half of the flour and cocoa. Stir and beat quickly. Stir in the remainder of the flour and beat quickly again. Turn at once into the prepared cake tin and bake in a moderate oven for 30-45 minutes..

note: it is important that the apples are well drained. too much moisture will spoil the cake....
