Shabana's Chocolate Cake
Coffee Break!
Today, I don't know why...I am just not myself and I hate feeling this way . As a result of that...whatever I experimented, it either didn't come out well or I have difficulties doing it...But the funny thing is...I am still trying no matter how I had to struggle to get it done! For instance...this morning, I tried making Murtabak (thanks to Cekya's Murtabak Singapore's entry... for making me wish for murtabak!). I made the dough yesterday evening and kept it in the fridge for today's project! Boy!!! Do I have a tough time doing it all by myself! Ended up just doing 3 murtabaks and the others as roti canai! The 3 murtabaks are in the freezer for tommorrow's breakfast. I hope it's tasty and worth all the effort!

Then I tried baking a chocolate cake, from Shabana Raidhan's recipe. She gave me the cake a few weeks back, to taste and will give me the recipe if I want it. ME?....RECIPES?...How can I ever refuse! So I made it today. SAD to say, it didn't come out like hers. Was quite upset tho! I think, reason being...
    1. I used the wrong sized tin. She used a bundt pan and clever me, I used the square big tin! Though I have the feeling it's not the right tin to use, but I still proceed!
    2. Baked a bit too long maybe because was busy cleaning the kitchen

Anyway, just not to disappoint anyone, here's Shabana's Chocolate Cake recipe and her chocolate cake photo that she sent me last time. Will post mine, when I FINALLY got it right!



1 cup cake flour
1 cup castor sugar
4 eggs, separated
2 Tbs cocoa
½ cup oil
½ cup hot water
3 tsp baking powder
½ tsp caramel or vanilla essence


250g margarine
1 tin condensed milk
cocoa powder as desired according to taste
½ tsp vanilla essence


Sieve flour, castor sugar, cocoa and 2 tsp baking powder three times. Add egg yolks, hot water, essence and oil and beat for 1 minute. Beat the egg whites and 1 tsp baking powder until stiff and peak form. Fold the egg whites lightly into the cocoa mixture using a metal spoon. Grease baking tin and dust with flour. Pour the mixture in and bake for 15-20 mins at 180degreesC until done.

Method for Icing

Melt the margarine, not necessarily on the stove. Beat until it’s white. Add the condensed milk, cocoa powder and essence and beat until creamy.

Note :
Shabs, we need to meet up so that you can show me how you bake the cake and I'll show you how to do the donuts huh! Deal?

Just because mummy is not herself today, so daddy had to 'cook' lunch. And daddy's 'cooking' was very fast! 4 kinds of food in less than 20 minutes! Guess what he 'cooked'? Anyone? Hahaha...yeah right....NANDO'S! We enjoyed the meal he 'served'...very much indeed!

Collage technique...practicing!
