This time my ‘inspiration’ came from the talented Lazychef, Rachel. She had used Dralion’s (a KC member) Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake recipe and made these pretty mini chocolate cakes. Borrowing her idea of making small individual cakes, I baked mine in muffin cups. Thanks Dralion and Rachel.
The cakes turned out great, wonderfully moist and deliciously chocolaty. Do not be fooled in thinking these cakes look dense, in fact, they are pretty light, since I devoured two cupcakes soon after they have cooled. Being a non-fan of frosting(unless it’s a special occasion), I skipped the fudge topping and sprinkled on some icing sugar.
Do give it a try, it’s simple to prepare, you don’t even need a mixer, and takes only 15 minutes to steam (for cupcakes). I kept one aside on purpose, just to see how soon they will dry out. 3 days and it’s as good as freshly made. Maybe it can last longer, that I’m not sure, because by the third day, I had ‘walloped’ the last one standing.
On a side note, my fellow blogger friends, have you ever haad undesirable people ‘barging’ into your blog and leaving non-constructive and negative comments, sometimes even personal attacks? These people either hide themselves under the ‘Anonymous’ cloak, or they use a nickname copied from someone whom you are familiar with. I started out by not moderating comments, until I start getting quite a few of these people on the comments page. Their words are not aimed at helping me improve on my baking/cooking, but they criticize simply because they are not happy. How do you deal with such people? Other than rejecting their comments, guess there’s not much to be done? Or am I opening a can of worms here?
