Hmm- big bag of white powder. Actually Kalyani is showing off the chocolate cake mix we made up today at MOPS. Yep our craft activity for MOPS today was making up a bulk dry mix for chocolate cake to keep on hand in the cupboard. I think this is such a great idea. Very quick and easy to make and it even makes a large enough cake to freeze some for later.
The recipe for it is:
3 cups plain flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
then add 2 cups water, 3/4 cup oil and 2 tablespoons vinegar when ready to cook.
Mix all ingredients until just combined. Cook at 180C for about 30-40 minutes.
5 1/2 weeks old and I can't get over how big this little man is getting. He's into 00 already especially with the more bulky cloth nappies on. He's looking quite different to Kalyani.
