I was at home yesterday and decided to celebrate my friend’s birthday… you might ask why I didn’t celebrate with them, let me answer that… there’s a puddle of water separating us called the Atlantic Ocean! They all had a get together in Brazil and me, here in the UK, decided to part-take! Why not??? So I decided to bake a cake… my own recipe. I had no idea if it would work, but I decided to give it a go anyway.
I am a self-proclaimed hater of white flour, I avoid it like the plague! If you need to use peroxide to change the natural colour of food, it can’t be good! So I decided to use plain wholemeal and rye flour.
Here is the recipe:
- 1.8 mugs of rye flour
- 0.7 mug of wholemeal flour (not exact science! Just try it out!)
- 2 mugs of brown sugar
- 1/2 mug of sunflower oil
- 2 mugs of UNBLEACHED corn flour (if it is not yellow, it is not good for this recipe)
- Four large eggs
- One tablespoon of baking powder
- For topping (optional)
- 75% of dark chocolate, 15% of milk chocolate
- A bit of white chocolate for decoration
- Very simple! Add all ingredients in a blender and blend it for about 4-5 minutes!
- Place it in a baking tray, large enough so that the dough is about 3 cm
- Pre-heat the over to over mark 6 (200°C) and place the tray.
- Bake for 30 minutes and stab the middle. If the knife is still dirty, leave it for longer.
- Once ready and cool, melt the dark chocolate and spread over the cake and, with a spoon, spread the white chocolate whoever way you want!
- Preparation time: Approximately 1 hour.
Enjoy! I certainly did!! (I still have well over half of it!)
