One Tin Chocolate Chip Cake

A long weekend it is this time… for the past two years, it has been such that public holidays apart from the Eid holidays are being moved to Thursdays or Sundays to make a long weekend. This week, the occasion of Isra Wal Miraj is the reason for this long weekend. This was the day that the ritual of five daily prayers were introduced to Muslims, through a one night trip of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) to the seven heavens, one of the miracles that happened during his prophet hood. Introduction of the Salaah, which is what we call for our prayers, happening from heaven, is testament itself as to how important it has to be in the life of a Muslim. Unfortunately, that is not the case with majority of our Ummah. On this occasion, I only pray to Allah to give me and my Muslim brothers and sisters the sincere intention to keep our prayers as perfect and as prompt on time and performance as possible, Aameen…


The climate over here has jumped to nearing 40s in just a week’s time. Last week, the climate was much calmer, however we have been having awefully humid days and nights for the past three days. Thanks to the fluctuating climate, everybody seem to be having some or other sort of virus attacks. My family is also not spared. HD is a bit jittery with slight fever and cough, both the kids are struggling with really bad clogged nose. I have no complaints, just a throatache and ear pain which is really irritating… hehe… That ensures that we have a calmer weekend, without any huge plans, which is also such a relief! And yes, that goes to say, umma has decided that we do no cooking as she also needs a public holiday, so both of us go ahead to take some rest… πŸ˜‰


Off to the recipe for today, it’s a very easy chocolate cake that I had baked during one of my instant cravings. What attracted me to this recipe was the term “one-tin”. The recipe asks to mix all in the tin and bake in the same tin. From what I experienced, I would have preferred it to be “one-bowl”. It is better to mix all the ingredients in a bowl, and pour the batter into a greased pan and bake accordingly. When all is done in the bowl, you shouldn’t expect your cake peices to come in perfect shape! If you are really not bothered about the shape of the piece you get, then definitely you can try!!! This cake is more crumbly and dry than fudgy and moist, however since it’s chocolate cake, it didn’t take much time to disappear… πŸ™‚Β Recipe adapted from here
