Chocolate Cake and Bunnies!!!
The batter was absolutely delicious!!!
I bought this cookbook, "Rachel's Favourite Food At Home" by Rachel Allen at the Mosaic bookstore in Kelowna! (New favorite bookstore!) It was only 9.99!!!
This is the 2nd recipe I've made from it ... first one was Maple Syrup and Pecan Muffins - delicate and scrumptious - I only got 1 before the guys ate them all!!!
Lots of good looking recipes but lets face it I was drawn to her beautiful apron in the photos!!!
BFF is always physically removing me from apron patterns but she was not there!!!
This cookbook is also in "mls" and "oz" so I'm really using my noggin!!!
Will really impress "The One Who Shall Remain Nameless" with this gorgeous treat tonight!!! Also BFF and her hubby will be over for dinner sooon and we shall see if there's any left for that.....
Also made all my "vines" using my Clover mini iron that I heart so much!!!
They seem so "bouncy" even without eyes or tails!!!
Now I have exactly 1 hour before BFF expects me to be ready to exercise so I better go frost that cake!!!
Ta Da!!!! Here's my CAKE!!!
Notice my White Rabbit!!!
This really takes alonga longa time!!!!
Now to exercise (I'm ready to let go of some of this computer aggression!!!) and then "LET ME EAT CAKE"!!!
OK, its hours later...exercise was great...dinner was excellent...this cake was delectable!!!
"Big Fat I Will Call This My Go To Chocolate Cake Recipe!"
I played with the icing and added some melted chocolate chips, buttermilk, and vanilla. Still, a little sweet...nothing that can't be played with again. The cake wasn't too chocolaty, very moist with the buttermilk and ....SUPER EASY TO MAKE!!!
Just a nice, cake would be good, kinda cake...and wham...there it is!!! I really like this cookbook...I shall cook again!
