My brother calls it… Cherry Ripe Cake.

Chocolate Cake Recipe

10678771_762776067126031_1966566116083115729_n

Cake Ingredients:

  • 270g (1 ⅓ cups) brown sugar
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) milk
  • 125g butter, cubed
  • 50g (1/2 cup) YIAH Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Powder
  • 150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 3 eggs, lightly whisked

Icing Ingredients:

  • 60g cream cheese, softened
  • 30g butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup #YIAH Salted Maple Chocolate Powder

Cake Method:

Place the sugar, milk and butter in a large saucepan along with the YIAH Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Powder. Place the pan over medium-low heat and use a whisk to stir until the mixture is smooth – don’t boil the mixture. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.

Use a sifter to sift the self-raising and plain flours into the pan. Use the whisk to stir until the mixture is smooth. Add the lightly whisked eggs and continue to stir until well combined.

Line your chosen cake pan with baking paper or spray with cooking oil etc. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan and gently tap the pan on a bench to release any large air bubbles. Bake in preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Set aside for 2 minutes before turning onto a wire rack. Set aside until completely cool.

Icing Method:

Place cream cheese and butter in a bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat until pale. Gradually add #YIAH Salted Maple Chocolate Powder, beating until combined. Once smooth, spread on top of cake and enjoy.

It has been a while since I last posted and I am not 100% certain I want to get back into this whole blogging thing at the moment, so we shall see how it goes. You just might hear from me every now and then.

My YIAH Pumpkin Salad.

My YIAH Pumpkin Salad seems to be a bit popular at the moment. So on request I am sharing the Recipe with you. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do, it is yum.

Pumpkin Salad Recipe

1513230_589591154444524_1446629864_n

Ingredients:

  • Cherry Tomatoes, cut in half
  • Mushrooms, cut in quarters
  • Pumpkin, cubed
  • Pine Nuts – you could also use slithered Almonds
  • YIAH Country Onion & Chives Dip Mix
  • YIAH Intense Garlic Olive Oil
  • Baby Spinach Leaves
  • YIAH Honey Caramelised Balsamic Vinegar
  • Fetta Cheese

Method:

Mix veg and pine nuts in a large bowl, toss with YIAH Intense Garlic Olive Oil and YIAH Country Onion and Chives Dip Mix. Place on oven tray lined with baking paper. Roast for 30-45 minutes, depending on oven.

I usually cook veg the night before and leave on tray in fridge covered with alfoil. You can however make it a couple of hours before to allow veg to cool or even have it slightly warm, depending on your preference.

A pretty good excuse I reckon?!

So I have finally got around to checking back into my Blog. It’s been a while!! Sorry that not much has been happening over here, but thank you to those who have still been visiting anyway.

A part from the fact that it has been a busy time of year – 2013 ending, 2014 beginning… I have a pretty good excuse I reckon.

I have been pretty sick with it all, so have been a little quiet at the moment. But hoping that it will start getting better and I can catch-up a bit more on the blogging scene.

Until next time. xx
