So, I've been baking since I was thirteen years old. To me, baking never seemed difficult but rather intriguing. It all started with my mum's chocolate cake. I remember everything about the cake, the taste, the smell, the guests it would attract and so on. What I loved about it was that my mum always involved me during the preparation of the cake be it just watching her or licking up the batter bowl or breaking the eggs; I've been hooked ever since. Better than the cake was the frosting. It was to die for. I've tried to make it at least a hundred times now but I can never get it to taste like hers. So this first post is dedicated to my mum. She still doesn't know that she's the reason I got into it. The chocolate cake I make now is not exactly the same as her recipe. This recipe never fails me. Its simple and the cake is delicious.It can be eaten plain but I prefer it with ganache .
