testing cakes

Tell me the truth. . . .
if you were responsible to guide ones taste buds to love chocolate forever. . .
would you take the task lightly?
I thought not.
This week, I have been busy perusing my best loved chocolate cake recipes for the cake that I'll be baking tomorrow.
This tender crumbed and soft as a cloud cake. . .just might be the one.
It is a bit tempting to give her a crash course with my favorite dense chocolate cake. . .
I'll let you know on Monday. . .
Oh. . I do hope my decorating skills are in top form tomorrow. .
I seem to have good days and well. . .less than pastry chef perfection on other days. . .
Have a wonderful day my friends. . . run on over to Mennonite Girls Can Cook if you are thinking of making a Chocolate Chiffon Cake that is powder puff light.

  1. Please please please post your favourite dense chocolate cake - in all my years of baking, chocolate cake has been my nemesis. I haven't made one "from scratch cake" that tastes as good as Duncan Heinz Deep Chocolate Cake (with an extra egg and pudding added). It's not that I'm totally against cake mixes, I just don't like this feeling of defeat... :)

    The chiffon cake sounds promising (although I may have to visit my local egg farmer) but we have dense chocolate cake lovers in this house.

    Have fun baking this weekend!

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  3. So light and fluffy looking...even I am tempted! And that from someone who usually shies away from most things chocolate.

  4. Just a quick note before I race over to MGCC to check out the chocolate chiffon.
    re guiding someone to a love of chocolate - by example, certainly, by example!
