On Monday at work we had a team meeting, the team decided we would bake cakes. I decided to bake a chocloate cake. I have tried to do this before not with very much success. They came out the oven gooey and then went hard! I got the receipe off the BBC website for this ultimate chocolate cake. My Daughter helped me bake it, as she loves cooking and baking. She did a good job of doing all the mixing.
I went to get the cake out of the oven and the one on the top was a bit burnt, but not to bad. My excuse is that I have a fairly new oven and I am not quite used to it. When it had cooled down I added double cream and nutella, and for a finishing touch sprinkled a flake on top.
When I came to slice the cake, I could not get the knife through it! I some how managed to slice it up. We all sat around the table and had a slice. It did taste alright but very sickly sweet. The receipe did have a lot of sugar in it. My Husband finished his and looked at me whilst looking a bit pale. He then proceeded to run to the bathroom to vomit! Then my Daughter started crying saying she felt sick. I felt a little nauseas but not too bad. My Husband does tend to vomit easily. He looked at me and said, "You can't take that into work tomorrow,", I hesitently looked at him and said, "I know,". So, that was my attempt at chocolate cake. I think I need to get Lorraine Pascale around to give me a few pointers, if anyone has her number or knows her do let her know!
Instead, I baked a banana cake, an old faithful. It went down a treat at work (well so they told me?).
