Chocolate Truffle Cake

It's my mom's birthday today and I wanted to make her something she hadn't had before. She likes anything to do with chocolate so I decided to try this Chocolate Truffle Cake - a recipe I got off the web.






The cake turned out well and tasted good too. It uses lots of melted chocolate and is a rather dense cake and doesnt rise too much as their is no baking powder used. The topping is basically a chocolate ganache with a little butter to help it set.


I decorated the cake with strawberries and champagne grapes and I must say that the cake was quite a delight! Mum enjoyed it and I suppose that's what really matters...!




Some preferred the cake by itself, while others enjoyed it with a dollop of ice cream.

Good Morning 2007

My first post for 2007!

Happy New Year!

Actually, its really just another day isnt it? I was supposed to make dessert for the New Years lunch at my grandmothers house (she's 98!) but since I had diarrhoea yesterday I didnt get of my butt (pardon the pun!)


I'm still not feeling too great so I think I'll pass on lunch and just stay at home. The wife and kids will probably go for a while after church. Not a very good way to start the New Year by just vegging at home - and also not going to church! But as I always say, religion is between the individual and God and I believe God is everywhere. So there!


Hopefully 2007 turns out well for everyone. God Bless.
