The first fault is I spend far too many hours reading food magazines, food blogs and watching cooking shows. This means I have copied, pasted, printed, bookmarked, saved and torn out enough recipes to put me in the "obsessive complusive" catagory.
The second fault is purchasing cooking and baking equipment, some of which are seldom used and there are a few which are still in the packaging, who knows how long after they were purchased.
But, I don't forget the things I buy, I know exactly where they are - I just haven't had the right recipe (see fault one) to use them. When I came across this recipe from Nina, at My Easy Cooking, I knew I would be able to use the huge baking tin I bought about 8 months ago, which was still in it's original packaging.
When I read Nina discription "This chocolate cake recipe is unconventional, dead-easy to make, egg free and you use only one bowl for mixing and baking" and "...it makes a huge cake", I was set. I went straight to copy, paste and print!
I did make one change, I left out the 1/2 tsp fine cloves and 1 tsp fine cinnamon and dissolved 6 heaped spoons of instant coffee into the boiling water. Please click here for the recipe and instuctions.
