Killing me softly

With calories and gooey goodness that is!
Yes, I'm back after I have no idea how long. And I decided to make a grand entrance in the tradition of the heroine or debutante that comes in late but dressed to to kill and sashays down the long winding staircase.
What better way to do so than by trying out a 'Death By Chocolate' cake.

A fan of Bangalore's famous Cornerhouse ice-cream shop's DBC dessert, it is one of the things that I miss here in Manila. And so I decided to put out the craving by making my own version of it.

And this is how it all turned out-

To whip up your own head here for a simple and very doable recipe.
In the tin you can see the pre-frosted version, which in itself is quite yummy, but not as moist as your average chocolate cake, which is probably because there is absolutely no milk used in the recipe and only 4 tablespoons of flour!
I also used unsweetened baking chocolate and added 4 tablespoons of powdered sugar as I melted it with butter.
For the frosting - I used my own chocolate frosting recipe that is so much simpler. I'll be putting it up here soon, but I'm going to try this one out too.
And for the mega sweet- tooth people out there like me and my hubby, remember to pair your cake up with either vanilla or chocolate ice-cream :)

 Will be back with more soon!
Oh and I wasn't around as I was busy with my first book 'Coming Up On The Show...The travails of a news trainee' that released in May this year. It's already hit the Landmark best-sellers list and has left me feeling giddily happy :) For more updates on the book do head here
And keep watching this space, I plan to get back into my blogging about yummies groove and it's always great to know that like me there are others out there whose stomachs growl for more.
Till next time here's to contented sighs and disguised happy burps! :)

A starving food blog

And here's why.

I've been busy setting up FIRST FEATHER CONSULTANTS, a firm that helps individuals start something new in the creative or business space and while I've been experimenting with different kinds of eats whenever possible, I've just not had the time to put them up here.

For more on First Feather please head over to SIMPLY SPEAKING where you can read the full story! And writers make sure you head across, as FIRST FEATHER is currently looking for submissions for an e-Book on persons of note. All details on Simply Speaking.

And if this has intrigued you, do join us on Facebook via the badge you see on your right!
