Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Moist Chocolate Cake

My daughter came home for the holidays and I made one of her favourite moist chocolate cakes.  Don't be fooled by the appearance of this cake.    It tastes fabulous and is very easy to make.  Top it with chocolate ganache and it's even more yummy.  A lot of my friends ask for the recipe after tasting it and I gladly share it with them.

This recipe is from my sister-in-law Vivien who is a good cook and also bakes delicious and beautiful cakes.

Moist Chocolate Cake

6 3/4 oz. plain flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp sodium bicarbonate
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 oz cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
12 oz. caster sugar
8 oz. corn oil
8 oz. evaporated milk
8oz. hot water and 3 tsp. nescafe  -  mix and let cool
2 eggs

1)    Mix all ingredients together and use only hand whisk to combine them.
2)    Batter is very watery.
3)    Line the pan with baking paper and brush with butter.
4)    Bake it in 9 1/2" pan at 160-170 deg. C for about one hour.  Check your cake after 50 mins. by testing
       with a skewer and if it comes out clean then it is done.  It would be easier to bake the cake in 2 separate 
      7" x 3.5" cake tins.
5)   Make sure the cake is complete cool before you overturn the cake otherwise it will crumble.

I am sure she will. Make sure you put chocolate ganache on top. She can even make it herself with a little supervision from you.
