♥...Moist Chocolate Cake...♥

Image
Having tried a few moist chocolate cakes before, the result had always disappointed me. It’ll be toooooooooo moisty (watery) in the center even after chilling for hours. Hey, I did not claim the recipe is wrong! I did mistake somewhere for sure! Well, I’ve just started baking U know…(errr, just justifying myself here…) Thus tempted me to try another recipe, highly recommended by Namitha and Sunitha from Cookingpals. Thanks to Namitha for passing me the conversion link. That really helps.

Would say I was terribly excited and satisfied with the outcome. My kids enjoyed the cake very much and Rishie has even ordered me to do it again. Haha, so what else verdict  do U need??? This recipe is sure a keeper.

Recipe originally adapted from HERE.

I made half of the recipe, direct copy from COOKINGPALS. Thanks again to Namitha for promoting it! Please do visit them, their photograph speaks everything!

♥...Simple Egg Benedict and my new Ramekins...♥

It was such a hectic time looking for ramekins in my area. Though Tesco, Giant and Jusco are so nearby, I simply don't find any ramekins there.

Hmmmm...luckily Jiya@14Sept told me that she saw some ramekin promotion in Tesco leaflet. My Hubby infact, took me to Tesco Shah Alam n Extra for this. Hahaha...but came back empty handed. Since Tesco Klang did not have it too, I cancelled my plan to look for it.

Finally, one fine day at Tesco Klang...whilst busy wandering around the bakery utensils section, I found this one n only set of ramekins! OMG, I was terribly happy and I immediately grabbed it. But before entering the trolley, I checked them thoroughly. Thank God, the set which consists of 4 ramekins were in good condition. I even asked a staff there if they have anymore stock left. He, with a smiling face answered that those ramekins finished in one day and that I'm lucky to have the last one atleast! Hehehe...

I actually wanted to make puddings in those ramekins. But before t…
