Let’s Get Cakey!

February 6, 2010

I’ve been spending a lot of time with my 9 year old niece, Tia, recently and I gave her an old Roald Dahl recipe book as she’s just started reading Matilda.  She obviously wanted to bake the BEST recipe which also happens to be from Matilda.  It was Bruce Bogtrotter’s Chocolate Cake from the bit in the story where he’s forced to eat the whole thing for being a greedy little pig.

It was made with 6 eggs, real butter and double cream…so as vegan as you can get basically, but apparently it tasted amazing.  I made it as a kid and i remember thinking I could have died and gone to heaven at that exact point.

Kids are cool…

Almost done.  It smelled sooo good…

Chow down…glaze = 1 x bar of plain chocolate + 225g double cream

“Amy!  I’m famous look at this, i’ve got 36 views”

It’s funny how I must mentally block out all the inappropriate adverts around on the internet because while i was washing up and Tia was playing Pacman she yelled out “AMYYYY!!  I clicked on this and this bad thing came up…Pacman doesn’t normally have that…?” which turned out to be pop up adverts for penis enlargement using the word “cock”.  Good one internet.  Great idea allowing that kind of sponsorship on a kid’s website.   I’m just glad i didn’t have to explain why someone would want a penis enlargement…
