Recipe: Vodka Chocolate Cake beta version

WidgetBucks - Trend Watch -

Well, there was to be a gathering for the seniors since they are going off soon. So for this going away party, i tried to make a Vodka Chocolate Cake. Why? Cos there was some vodka around, and I really had no idea on what to make on short notice (procastination rules!)

Ingrediants (for a single 9 inch round pan)

7/8 cup all purpose flour (1cup if you like, not much dif)
1 cup sugar (prefer it sweeter? add more)
3/8 cup cocoa powder (ditto to the above statement)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 veggie oil
1/4 water
1/4 Super Secret Ingrediant......... Vodka!

Step 0 Pre heat oven to 350 F
Step 1 Mix the flour, sugar, powder,soda and cocoa.
Step 2 Add in the remaining ingrediants, stir well
Step 3 Grease the 9 inch baking pan
Step 4 Bake for 50+ mins, use standard test to see if it is done

One thing I noticed is that alcohol related cakes seem to take longer to bake, hence do not panic or anything when the cake is still rather liquidy(is this even a word?!). Just wait a while longer. Personally I would have added less Vodka, cos I felt the flavor was overpowering the chocolate flavor. But some others liked it, so I guess it is a personal choice.

A recommanded step is to add chocolate syrup or frosting to the cake, it really makes it so so so much nicer (since I prefer the choc taste to be stronger).
