Recipe: Luscious Chocolate Fudge Cake!

This post is for the wonderful FourMe who has just discovered her hidden baking talent :*

I wanted a yummy chocolate cake. I felt like a yummy chocolate cake. I wanted to smell the cake baking in my kitchen… so i have decided that there is no shame in buying a ready made cake mix to make my self one! I bought mine which turned out to be amazing from M&S’s food court in 360 Mall…

This is all i needed to make it happen…

I preheated the oven to 160 C and took note of the time on the wall… 11:12 AM

I assembled the box’s content…

Followed the box’s instructions which were pretty straight forward…

Emptied the mix into a large mixing bowl

Added the 2 eggs, one by one…

Added the water…

Added the Oil

Whisked with my own hands until well mixed… no need for a mixer!

After i whisked my mixture until it resembled a smooth batter… i prepared my two round tins.. i need to line them with wax paper

I need to cut my wax paper into circles…

and lay  it at the bottom of the pan… no need for greasing!

I poured half the batter in each pan… and off to the oven for about 20 minutes…

and they were done! Bs! I applied the tooth pick test where i insert a toothpick in the middle of each cake and then pull it out… if it’s clean when it’s taken out that means the cake is done!

Look at the time… 11:52 and i have a gorgeous chocolate cake cooling down and awaiting frosting!

While the cake cools down i beat 50 g of softened butter with a whisk…

Gradually added the frosting mix… whisk whisk…

On the side i immersed the bag of chocolate pieces in boiling water for 2 minutes…

Added some tablespoons of warm water to the whisked butter and frosting mix…

Squeezed out the melted chocolate from the immersed chocolate bag…

Whisked until i got this yummy frosting consistency!

Now the fun part… the assembly! I placed the first cake on my serving dish…

Had fun slathering around the frosting on top…

I placed the 2nd Cake on top of the frosted first cake…

Pouring the frosting on top…

Spreading it all around…

It’s done! Or is it?

There are still the chocolate shavings to be added on top… just sprinkled them around…

Now the cake is done! Lovely Isn’t it?

I took it out to the dining table…

Cut my self a piece immediately… that was my brunch!

Check out the frosting between the cake layers

So yummy 🙂

My only regret is that my cake pans were too big (26 cm) when i should have used an 18 cm cake pan madry tin! If i had used a smaller one my cake would have been much higher and something as lovely as a bakery made one!

If you are in the mood, bake this cake from that mix… available in 360 mall for 2.500 KD only!
