“Let’s face it, a good, creamy chocolate cake does a lot for people; it does for me.” ~ Audrey Hepburn
Every now and then life takes it’s own course of destiny, and you are pretty much forced to return to the basics. And when that happens, the only option is to stand straight, chin held high and face the world with open arms, ready to conquer! We all make mistakes, and we have to be mature enough to face the consequences. Having said that, the word regret should never exist – regret is an evil force that can dangerously affect your course.
Everything happens for a reason, just have a little faith in yourself, in the people around you and on the higher forces above you.
Life won’t stop or wait for you to get up, but that doesn’t mean you are not entitled to a breather, a lazy morning, an indulgent meal and most importantly, a slice of decadent chocolate cake.
My personality is one of being constantly positive, looking at a glass half full and finding a moment to laugh during the direst moments. (I can be pretty frustrating to be around at times.) But I do have my down moments, and nothing can cheer me up better than a sinful slice of chocolate cake; none of the fake boxed ones, but a made-from-scratch, fudgy, REAL chocolate cake.
This recipe is not mine, but from Jennifer Pallian’s food blog, and it’s the only one that makes sense on a dreary afternoon.
(I have been terribly guilty of sitting with an entire cake and fork on my bed, to watch back-to-back episodes of The Royals.)
This recipe is a non-fussy and ridiculously easy one. The steps are almost therapeutic, as you do not need to use your brains at all. Perhaps, the hardest part is waiting for the cakes to cool down to frost. The quantity is perfect for two layers, sandwiched between a rich chocolate icing. I use buttercream frosting, but you are welcome to use royal icing, or a glaze flavoured with hazelnut liqueur. The frosting is simple and complements the cake with the perfect amount of sweetness.
