Moist Chocolate Cake

Rich Moist Chocolate Cake2

Check out this recipe for a Moist Chocolate Cake which is very similar to a chocolate mudcake.  It is an incredibly moist cake with a rich chocolate flavor that brings to mind the word “perfection” upon taking just a single bite of it.  Jennifer over at Foodess says, “It is a great emergency cake to have in your repertoire for forgotten birthdays, last-minute visitors, or urgent Friday night chocolate cravings.  I love to smother it in gooey marshmallow frosting (the seven-minute kind made with just whipped egg whites, sugar, and vanilla)” and she’s definitely not wrong!

Preparation time is only 15 minutes and Cooking Time is 35 minutes

Handy Hint from Jennifer:  To use this recipe for cupcakes, preheat oven to 375F or 190C instead, and line two 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.  Divide batter evenly among cups and bake 20-25 minutes, until tops spring back when gently pressed and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs.  Makes 24 cupcakes.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Brownie

Check out this Chocolate and Peanut Butter Brownie recipe that really hits the spot!  Chocolate and Peanut Butter are a match made in heaven for the sweet vs salty flavors and this little recipe is one to impress.  Perfect for morning or afternoon tea, lunchbox treats or just to indulge yourself with something sweet, these are divine!  The original recipe is by the very creative Michelle Southan of Taste and photography by Ben Dearnley.  This recipe has been adapted from the original one by substituting with an alternate peanut butter and using organic dark chocolate along with dutch processed cocoa.

  • Melted butter, to grease
  • 150g dark organic chocolate, coarsely chopped (or plain dark chocolate see original recipe)
  • 100g butter, chopped
  • 215g (1 cup) caster sugar
  • 75g (1/2 cup) plain flour
  • 2 tbs dutch processed cocoa powder (or standard cocoa powder see original recipe)
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g (3/4 cup) smooth peanut butter (or crunchy peanut butter see original recipe)
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C / 320F (Fan Forced). Brush a 16 x 26cm or 6″ x 10″(base measurement) slab pan with melted butter to grease.  Line base and 2 long sides with non-stick baking paper, allowing the sides to overhang.
  2. Place the chocolate and butter in a large heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water. Use a metal spoon to stir until the chocolate melts and mixture is smooth.
  3. Combine the sugar, flour and cocoa powder in a bowl. Add chocolate mixture and eggs and stir until just combined. Pour into prepared pan. Spoon peanut butter over brownie mixture and use a round-bladed knife to create swirls.
  4. Bake in oven for 35-40 minutes or until crumbs cling to a skewer inserted into the centre. Set aside to cool completely. Cut into slices to serve.  (Optional:  Serve with a scoop of Vanilla Ice-Cream)
