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
