Now if there’s one thing close to a potters heart other than pots, it’s food. I’ve just popped into the over two chocolate cakes:

Recipe:  Super Easy (very delicious) Chocolate Cake

1 cup organic s/r flour

1 cup organic raw sugar

1/3 cup cocoa

1/3 cup organic butter (softened)

1/2 cup organic full cream milk

2 organic eggs

Directions:  sift dry ingredients into bowl of mix master, then add wet ingredients. Mix on med/high for 4 minutes until light and fluffy.  Bake in a square or round lined cake tin for 35-40 minutes on a 160 oven.

Ice with your favourite icing or for simplicity dust with some pure icing sugar.

Serve with a cuppa coffee, tea or hot chocolate…..enjoy.

I was was going to post a photo of the first chocolate cake out of the oven, but wordpress uploader isn’t working, so it’s a oldie but a goodie – a cup for your your tea or coffee instead.

If you’re around the Northside of Brisbane tomorrow or Sunday, please drop in for a piece of cake, cuppa, chat and demonstration. Love to see you…..Pattie

August….

I’ve been looking forward to August and have had my husband finishing off some jobs around the studio in preparation for the Unearth Your Local Potter  Open Studio weekend.

Next weekend I’ll be moving my wheels around so visitors can get a good view of my wheel throwing demonstration and giving the studio a good clean up.
