I love to bake cakes, in fact I often find myself daydreaming about cakes during boring lectures and doodling cakes on the margins of my notebooks.
Sadly, during the semester I don't have time to make a proper cake, but here is a recipe everyone can follow using basic ingredients and a cake mix.
This cake ends up to have four different layers; the top of the cake is a chocolate meringue, the next layer become almost mousse-like, the thirds layer is the gooey chocolate cake, and the last layer is a rich dense chocolate cake.
Once you make this all your friends and family will be begging you to make more and soon it will become your best bargaining chip :)
Here's what you'll need:
~ 1 chocolate cake mix
~ 3 eggs
~ 1 package of cream cheese (8 oz.)
~ 4 tbsp. cocoa powder
~ 1 whole box of powdered sugar
~ 2 sticks of butter
~ 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Step 1: Get those hands dirty!
In a nice big bowl combine the cake mix, a melted stick of butter and an egg. It's a bit hard to combine these three elements with a spoon or mixer because there is so much more cake mix in proportion to the melted butter and egg so I like to get my hands in there.
I'm sure y'all are clean people, but it never hurts to wash your hands before you get them working the base of the cake all together.
After it has been worked, the base shouldn't be liquid-y, it should have the consistency of molding clay.
It'll also smell really good. Mmmm chocolate-y
