I think it’s so important to cherish both little and big achievements in life. Having spent a lovely weekend quietly at home surrounded by family and extended ones with simple home cooked food and this chocolate cake was pure bliss. It was my 43 rd birthday and I was feeling so full of life, simply it could be the gorgeous weather or something to do with my inner will power that motivates me and brings me in the innate amount of curiosity to try out new things.
I know you would always find me baking something or other but this time it was different form of pleasure, maybe baking an indulgence for yours truly and keeping the calorie chart at bay. This chocolate cake totally proves that an uncomplicated recipe with few classic ingredients could still be something special.What I personally like in this recipe is that there is no need of going an extra mile to whisk the butter and sugar until pale and silky. This recipe was adapted from Australian women’s weekly, for me it was my ultimate saviour. There was a time in my career, I had dreams of entering into cake baking and decorating business, because I couldn’t get my logistic sorted out and honestly there wasn’t any extra perks to keep you motivated.. so I had to step out. That’s another story for another time. So this was the ultimate chocolate cake that I baked religiously weekend after weekend to meets the clients need. It was the best and not only that it stays fresh for at least 3 days .
This ridiculously easy chocolate cake being the best and moist has always been high on the list of birthday cake requests from my friends and family. I am sure with not much drama involved in prepping and organising, this will be your go to go recipe. I am planning to make a simple video and update soon. Hopefully that will inspire you. Before we get our pans and mittens ready, this silky ganache is adapted from Donna hay Modern baking book. Sour cream adds an amazing taste and a wonderful texture to the ganache. I suggest you to try sour cream instead of regular cream for a difference.
