I used to bake this cake regularly, 3-4 years ago, then I got bored and stopped baking it altogether. Well, I've a tendency to overdo things. If I'm hyper, I'll make sure to use every ounce of my energy to do something productive, similarly, if I'm lethargic, I make sure not to get out of bed ;) But these days, I'm working to find a middle ground, the thing is I find the middle ground too boring a place to be. Let's see how it works..
Anyways, we had some friends come over during the weekend. I wanted to make a simple dessert, not too dressy and zeroed in on this one. Also, I wanted to slowly get into the baking mode. I was going slow on the baking front for quite sometime. Now that the Christmas season is around the corner, I wanted to warm up and be ready for the season of baking!
That's another reason why I chose this recipe. This is a quick-mix cake. It's ideal for a warm up session,no complications and confusions and to top it off very few ingredients. This cake has a brownie texture. It pairs well with ice cream, but since the climate is changing here and everybody is going through the “cold and flu” phase, I decided to make a chocolate sauce instead. Honestly, you dont even need the chocolate sauce, it is good as it is, just dust some icing sugar on top and you are ready to go. I had some hidden agenda, I made the chocolate sauce mainly for the pictures ;)
