Blog Challenge Day 13: Favorite cake recipe

I love to cook and bake. Whenever I tell people I’ll be trying a new cake recipe for my b-day, they’re usually already excited. I have even made cakes/ muffins/ brownies for friend’s b-days, my mom’s b-day, or just whenever I feel like it. It’s something I thoroughly enjoy and it excites me when my latest stint in the kitchen elicits a mmmmmm from people’s mouths. Below, I will describe my favorite cake recipe. It’s one I put together from my mom’s pound cake recipe, a bit of internet research and my own intuition. It’s a guaranteed success every time, so I thought: let’s share it on here! this cake is NOT for those with a weak stomach as it stuffs you right up. It is incredibly yummy though and especially when you love chocolate, like me, you’ll find yourself just a little step closer to heaven. So here is my recipe for a chocolate glazed chocolate cake.

Ingredients:

Glaze:

2 tablespoons of butter (unsalted)

2 ounces of unsweet chocolate

1 cup sifted confectioner’s sugar (also: icing sugar or in Dutch: poedersuiker)

2 tablespoons of boiling water

Cake: (this makes a regular 200 gram pound cake)

200 grams unsalted butter at room temperature (Dutch: margarine)

200 grams of regular sugar

4 eggs

200 grams of self-raising flour

150 grams of unsweet chocolate

Filling:

200 milliliters of unwhipped whipped cream

1 sachet of ‘klop-fix’ (this allows the cream to get whipped better and it flavors it at the same time)

Note: in total, I use 3 bars of unsweet chocolate of 75 grams a piece.
