Chocolate Butter Cake


Puff and pant...
Puff and pant... minute... let me catch my breath.... breathe in.. breathe out... okay...

Hello everyone, I am back, as promised! I thought I was late to cook as Syahmi is supposed to go for his driving lessons at 1pm. With the piping problem in my kitchen, it really slowed down my work. But I am still grateful, even though the water flow is very very slow, at least I still have clean water to use for drinking and washing. Thank you Allah.

After racing against time (hahaha... dah macam sprinter pulak bunyinya...mama dah over dah ni...muahahaha...), I managed to cook in good time. When Syahmi came downstairs, he told me that today's lesson had to be canceled. Hmmm what else can I say...

Our menu....


Made these cakes last Friday, to serve my aunt and cousins who came by from Johor Baru. I gave one tray to hubby's cousin and the rest was enjoyed by my guests. And oh, I managed to send some to my dear neighbour Saerah too. So, thousand apologies in advance to those who has the intention to ask for a piece or two ya.... All gone dearies..... *wink* *wink*

Preparation time : 25 minutes
Baking time : 45 minutes
Makes one 20cm round cake

Ingredients :

150g unsalted butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 3/4 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup milk

Method :

1. Preheat oven to moderate 180 C (oven temperature may vary). Brush a deep 20 cm round cake tin with melted butter or oil, line base and side with paper; grease paper.
2. Using electric beaters, beat butter and sugar in small mixing bowl until light and creamy. Add the eggs gradually, beating thoroughly after each addition. Add the essence; beat until combined. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl.
3. Using a metal spoon, fold in sifted flour and cocoa powder alternately with milk. Stir until just combined and mixture is almost smooth. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin; smooth the surface.
4. Bake 45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean when inserted in center of cake. Leave in tin 10 minutes before turning onto wire rack to cool.

Note :

1. I made double the recipe.
2. I used Buttercup.
3. I didn't use the electric beaters. I just beat manually using a wooden spoon.
4. I didn't do the topping.

Have a nice day!
