Hola Everyone !!!
As we are getting in to usher in the New Year ,I wish all my readers a very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2017!!
Dedicating my last post of the year to my Hubby who is celebrating his birthday today.Wishing him a healthy and Prosperous New Year 2017!!!!!!!
This year has been a year of mixed emotions for my family. We have seen success at work, personal losses, kids progressing well to name a few.It has helped me to emerge as a more stronger person with the valuable support of my Family and friends. It has not deterred me from emerging as a more stronger person with a positive outlook and hope.
To celebrate this day I made a simple Chocolate Cake (as hubby and kids dislike fondant or cream cakes) .It has added to our memories of 2016.
Recipe for Chocolate Cake:
3 Cups of All Purpose Flour (Unbleached)
1 3/4 Cup of Powdered Sugar
2 Cups of Cold Water
2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
2 Tsp White Vinegar
2/3 Cup of Sunflower Oil
1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
Some Slivered Almonds for garnish
Some Choco Chips to garnish
Pre Heat the Oven at 200 C for 10 mins.Sift all the dry ingredients in a wide Bottom bowl. Make a small well in the center and all the wet ingredients.Mix all the ingredients and ensure there are no lumps.Pour the mixture into a greased baking pan ,garnish with choco chips and slivered almonds and place it in the pre heated oven.Bake for about 25 to 30 mins or until the tooth pick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Serve with any ice cream of your choice or dusted powdered sugar or whipped cream.
