#BlogVember Day 13 – Recipe time!

Today I’m sharing with you two of my favourite quick and easy recipes instead of one because I couldn’t decide between a sweet or savoury treat!

First off the Amarula cake, this cake is loved so much by family and friends that I have to make it double otherwise there isn’t enough! I found this recipe on a facebook page called: Kreatiwe kos idees.

  • Flake or grated chocolate – optional
Method:

  • Mix cacao and boiling water to create a paste, let cool
  • Beat eggs, sugar and oil together until light and fluffy, add the cacao paste and mix well
  • Sift all the dry ingredients together and mix well with the egg mixture
  • Spoon the batter into an oven safe dish and bake for 20 minutes.
  • In the meantime melt boil the water and sugar together until the sugar is dissolved, take off the heat and add the amarula
  • As soon as the cake gets out of the oven poke it with a fork a couple of times and pour the syrup over.
  • Spread the caramel over as soon as it’s cooled completely and decorate with the cream and chocolate if you prefer.
