Answers to Questions Part 3

DH and I have worked on a couple of projects together. It is a bit strange I must say. My DH changes completely at work, he is so business-like and in meetings calls the shots. Its funny to watch 🙂 Its not too bad though, we havent disagreed or anything and some people didnt know we are married so thats good that we can separate business from home stuff.

About blogging – Ill see how it goes. Perhaps as you say I will need it as a form of escape, not sure yet.

Here is the recipe:

This is an old fav of mine, its so quick and easy and seriously delicious. I call them chocolate brownies/cake, you ultimately cut them into squares. Also a good recipe for vegans and those who do not eat eggs.

This part is of the utmost importance – you have to, have to use that rectangular metal dish that you get with your oven, the one that you make roasts in. Not sure how it works overseas but all I know is that if you try in any glass dish it doesnt work. Ive never tried in a round metal cake dish but I think it should work the same although you will have to mix it first and then pour into two metal dishes.

3 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
5 sifted Tablespoons of cocoa
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda (not baking powder)
Dash of salt
Mix this together

Add 12 Tablespoons of oil (I use sunflower)
1 Tablespoons of Vanilla Essence
2 Tablespoons of vinegar
2 cups of water

Optional: chocolate disks/chips (makes the cake more choclately)

Mix with a fork in the metal roasting dish. 180 degrees celcius and bake for 25 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.

In the meantime make your icing. Its important that the icing and cake are warm when you spread it on the cake, it goes on easier as the icing starts to set very quickly.

Add 1.5 cups sifted icing sugar
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 Tablespoon of margarine
2 Tablespoon of milk

Put into a microwave until the icing starts to bubble, mix vigorously, if too thick add a very tiny amount of water. The icing should have quite a runny consistency as it does harden as it sets. Spread over cake and leave to set.

Cut into squares and enjoy!
