Chocolate Fudge Cake
Hello you lovely people!
Where has time gone?! I have been M.I.A lately and hopefully will get back into some sort of blogging routine soon. I don't really know what it is about summer but blogging seems to go out the window for me. It probably has a lot to do with the bright long evenings and the fact we are actually having a summer. It has been a fantastic summer so far. You can wear shorts,vests and dresses without getting the 'I hope we get the weather shes expecting look' lol! I've been baking here and there but not half as regular as I would...I'm clearly a seasonal baker.
Last week I got an urge...I just HAD to have cake. I was in work and was itching for home time just so I could start baking. The last few weeks of bakes have been for other people so I had great plans to sit and eat cake all to myself until I couldn't breathe.....and that's exactly what I did!
Admittedly I didn't eat the whole thing alone. G and Mr. T were only too happy to indulge with me. It was light and fluffy with a smooth chocolatey buttercream. I adapted a recipe from god knows because I am clearly the most unorganised person EVER. But I do remember adding maple syrup to the cake batter and my, my! I will definitely be doing it again. It gave the richest,deepest flavour.....superb!
Happy Tuesday guys and I hope everyones enjoying their summer!
