A sudden craving for chocolate cakes filled myself as the winter breeze entered the hallway through the open window. Winder days are so refreshing and make you want hot chocolates and brownies fo dinner.
It was 8 pm when i was wondering if am gonna follow a recipe from a book and bake or use the usual recipe and add some cocoa to make it a chocolate cake which is how i sometimes do when i think of the idea that the butter should be beaten so that the sugar is dissolved. I find it boring at times as the sugar crystals never dissolve easily. They are so coarse and using powdered sugar to bake a cake is not a good idea as it does not taste the same for me.
So here i decided to make it easy and experiment by creating my own instructions and ingredients.
I name it after myself as it’s my lazy day quick chocolate cake.
