Sunset Cake = Overbaked

>> Sunday, 10 January 2010

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a good weekend filled with coffee, good food, great music, finished chores and maybe a walk or two.

Weekends really are the days to savour all that is right with the world, are they not?

Tonight I attempted this recipe for Magic Chocolate a mug!

Pretty hard to believe huh? I thought so too, but I figured I would 'bake the cake' and go for a walk while it cooled so I could ice it.
Therein could have been the problem.

I think I overbaked the sucker...and I was probably supposed to eat it right away,but I am a stickler for icing. At 2 1/2 minutes, my cake looked and fairly decent, albeit very dense. I had cut the cake into two because it was HUGE, placed it on a plate and went out for a walk in the back field.
The walk was great and I mixed up a basic icing and iced the two cakes. Let's just say that I took two bites to photograph.*shrugs* Way too dense & dry but a decent flavour (I had sprinkled semi-sweet chocolate chips in the batter as well).
Please tell me if you made/make this and let me know how yours turned out! :)

Hi there - I just popped over from Joy the Baker. You're blog looks great (I'm a Jamie fan too - love his bash it together, make something delicious style). I've never tried baking a cake in a mug, although I came across a recipe in an old magazine once and was curious. Now I'm even more curious, so of course I have to try it. Thanks for the idea - looking forward to reading more of you! :-)

Hey Madeline and Jennifer!

Thanks for stopping by :)
Yeah, the cake-in-a-mug bit.*LOL* Maybe I did something wrong (like overbake it would be my guess. Hahahaha)..but there seems to be a lot of egg and oil in this, so that's a possibility.
