Recipe - Kai An's Bday and the messed up cake

WidgetBucks - Trend Watch - WidgetBucks.com

It was Kai An's Bday and I planning on baking a multi layered chocolate cake as requested by Alicia.

Ingrediants:

7/8 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
3/8 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup kopi gao(strong coffee)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 veggie oil

2 packs of semi sweet chocolates
1 pack of white chocolate

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, mix damn well

Step 3 Grease the 9 in baking pan

Step 4 Bake for 30+ mins, use standard brownie test to see if it is done

Step 5 Allow the Cake to cool down

Step 6 Slice the cake in half.... at least that was the intention, but the cake broke apart while cutting it in half, so i melted the semi sweet chocolate and just "glued" it back again.

Step 7 Since things were going so badly, I just melted the remaining white chocolate, added some icing sugar and milk. Then i just poured and spread it all over the cake, or what remained of the cake.

How to melt chocolate using water bath:

  1. Boil a pot of water.
  2. Turn off the heat, place a metal bowl on top
  3. Add in the broken chocolate pieces and stir well
Never allow a single drop of water to touch the chocolate as it will mess it up. If water comes into contact, add a bit of veg oil and stir well. It will fix the problem, but the taste will be affected.

If you must add liquid of some sorts, add it at the start before the melting process. (Research on the internet told me this info)
