My Version Of My Chocolate Moist Cake

I was able to buy a Cocoa last Monday and when I arrived home, after I updated my blogs I started to mix all the ingredients.

These are the ingredients I followed

1 1/2 cup purpose flour

1 1/2 cup white sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1 1/2 full cream milk since I didn’t have the butter milk I just put 3 citrus juices on it

I also put butter on it, didn’t know I should not to because the butter is for the frosting, the moist cake on the top. I mixed all the ingredients. I realized that I did the steps wrong after I mixed it all, but since I don’t want to waste all the ingredients that were mixed already. I pushed it through. I put 1 cup of water on it. And put it in the oven. I was already afraid that the whole thing will be fail; I was even checking it every minute. My sister said I need to stop; it will eventually rise since I put a baking soda on it. Anyway I made it right somehow. It looks dry since I did not put the moist frosting on the top of the cake. But my niece said it tasted good, it is not too sweet but it is palatable.

My version of a moist chocolate cake

It is not absolutely perfect but who cares my kids love it. They kept on getting back every now and then to have a mouthful of this.

Not Too Sweet

The other day when my husband wired me some money, I bought a cocoa powder for me to be able to mix it with the ingredients at home so I can bake a cake. I didn’t really know what I was doing. I just follow the You Tube demo on how to bake a chocolate moist cake; I combined with the other recipe I found online. I was praying so hard that it would result all right. I was praying that if it was not a perfect cake at least it tasted as one. I also changed the measurement of some of the ingredients, which made me more nervous.

When I put it on the oven, I was crossing my finger that it would raise. When I check it the first time, I was slightly freaking out because it seems like it didn’t rise at all. But after 30 minutes I saw the improvements.  When I checked it with a toothpick the first time, it was wet. I said oh no I think it won’t cook but after few more minutes, when I checked it again, it was not wet anymore. I exclaimed finally “Success”. When I and my sister tasted it even though it was not perfect, it tasted like a cake at all even though it doesn’t have frosting because I combined all the ingredients I forgot I still need to make the moist on top but it’s okay it doesn’t matter at all, what important is that Faith likes it because it wasn’t too sweet but not dull.

Fail!

I was planning to bake for a moist cake, my husband sent me over the recipe and since I already have almost the ingredients at home so I did not mind at all to buy any other stuff. What I bought was the vanilla and the sugar when we went home last night after church. But when I review the recipe I noticed it doesn’t have the chocolate and I realized what I wanted to bake is the Moist Chocolate Cake, Mariel, my niece said to check the cocoa powder she bought few months ago but my daughter answered it was made for Champorado. So I could not do anything but to wait until tomorrow to buy the Cocoa powder, this is my first time to bake and please pray for me, lol!

Flop Strawberry Cheesecake

I was looking forward of my niece Strawberry Cheesecake, instead of baking it on the 24th, she decided to bake it on the 25th. Everyone was excited of the outcome but it took her very long to finish it, she keeps on putting it back to the oven. I felt asleep while waiting, when I woke up I look for the cake right away but when I tasted it, the strawberry was too much; I mean I know it is a Strawberry Cheesecake and the taste of the Strawberry should be on top of it however it feels like it is too much. And when I ate the cake long, it doesn’t taste good at all.

My niece agreed to it, she puts a lot of strawberry to it or maybe her procedure of putting it is wrong that’s why it was a flop. Maybe she needs to practice more on baking cakes, I mean she is already good in baking cookies, I am sure she will do well in baking cakes in the future if she would take her time on practicing with perfect ingredients and perfect recipe.
