Cake vs. Books
Okay, I won’t be finishing any books this week, let alone review any. It turned out that most of the books I picked for my Autumn reading are HUGE. I’m alternating between ‘Outlander’ and ‘Dragons of Autumn Twilight’ now. Hopefully, I’ll finish one or both of them next week. Until then, I thought I’d just write a post regarding my baking.
I don’t know if anyone really noticed, but I didn’t put up any recipes together with my last couple of book reviews. If I have to try out a new recipe with every book I read, I have to bake more cakes than I have time for really; something I found out along the way. Sooo, I decided to reserve the experimental baking only for those books that have a good connection with a certain recipe (in my opinion).
I actually DID make a cake which should have accompanied Ti and The Magical Key , but I never uploaded it anymore due to my wedding. So, instead of a book review this week, I’m giving you cake. Paleo style cake!!
I chose this recipe for Ti, because the book involves the Goddess of cocoa, and DAMN, a lot of cocoa powder went in this one! It’s also a healthy recipe with plenty of vitamins, minerals and unsaturated fats. Perfect for kids! It should quickly fill them up as well, cause, whew, this stuff is rich…*burps*
Today, my parents got me this GIANT of a kitchen machine, so I’m really looking forward to trying out something nice with it. I literally couldn’t stop looking at it this afternoon; in fact, every time I walk past it, I find myself staring in admiration. Can a husband get jealous of a kitchen machine? The answer is yes, maybe.
I’m hoping to bake a Halloween theme-related cake this week, so stay tuned!
