Easy Chocolate Cake: Cream Decorating

There comes a time in everyone’s life when you urgently need to cook something fast. Whether it’s a party or simply a dinner with your friends, or even a special romantic dinner, we bet you needed at some point to have a dessert ready in no time. The best solution is to look for an easy chocolate cake recipe and to follow it closely. This is a special recipe that will certainly save the day, or the party, or the dinner!

For this easy chocolate cake you will need:

  • 10 mls vanilla extract
  • 5 mls baking powder
  • 360 mls whole milk
  • 480 mls all-purpose flour
  • 161 mls granulated sugar
  • 2 mls salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 5 mls baking soda
  • 120 mls unsweetened cocoa
  • 161 mls dark brown sugar
  • 180 mls butter
  • Frosting

First of all, you will need to make a batter. Remember to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Then, take the cake pans (preferably 8-inch ones) and coat them with softened butter. Dust them with flour and tap out any excess. Leave them aside and start making the batter. Set the mixer at a low speed and mix the flour with the rest of the ingredients. Mix for 3 minutes at medium speed.

Split the batter equally in the pans and make sure it’s evenly spread. Place the pans on the middle rack of the oven until you see that the tops spring back when you touch them. Take them out of the oven and let them cool down for 10 minutes. Use gently a knife and loosen the cake from the pan sides. Then invert them in order to cool completely.

Level the tops of the cake layers if they need it. Place parchment paper or waxed paper on a special cake plate. Then put one layer of the cake side down on top of them. Make sure the layer is with the trimmed side down. Use half of the frosting you have on top of the layer and spread it evenly. Then place the second layer on it, and use the rest of the frosting on it and also around. Remove the paper strips you have placed in the beginning and it’s ready to be served! Make sure you store it in the fridge and that you don’t keep it more than 4 days. Well, that is, if nobody eats it until then.

Of course, you can decorate it with whatever you want. It can become even more delicious if you add some fruits on it as decorations. Try using strawberries, bananas or any other fruits you enjoy. The best part about this recipe of easy chocolate cake is that it’s very fast and it uses chocolate, which is a safe bet if you’re hosting a party or a dinner. Enjoy!

Middle Eastern Recipes: Turkish delicious coffee

Middle Eastern cuisine has recently become more and more successful in the West. Even so, many people find it difficult to make such a dish, even though they are very tasty. So here you have some Middle Eastern recipes for beginners! You will find them very easy to cook and absolutely delicious!

1. Chicken Kebobs. A kebob is virtually the easiest Middle Eastern recipe you can find. You simply have to cook the chicken, the sauce, add any vegetables you want. Many people prefer to add French fries into the kebob or next to it. What’s important is that you need to use quite a lot of spices if you want to recreate that Oriental taste.

2. Falafel. Chickpeas, onion, garlic, parsley and other spices, and of course a pita where to roll them, are the ingredients for a perfect falafel that anyone can cook at home. This is a sort of Oriental reinvented sandwich which is absolutely tasty and great for vegetarians.

3. Kofta. Another one of the most delicious Middle Eastern recipes is Kofta. It’s an alternative for meatloaf and it requires extra finely ground beef. If you can, ground the beef yourself a couple of times or ask your butcher to do it for you. Use a flat skewer to cook it and bake it in the oven or on the grill. Great for summer parties!

6. Pita Bread. And since we were talking earlier about pita bread, you might want to know how easy it is to make it. One of the most popular Middle Eastern recipes, pita bread requires yeast, water, flour, salt and granulated sugar. Although ideally it is made in brick ovens, where the temperatures are very high, you can also preheat your oven at 500 deg F. It can be served with almost any dish you like, including hummus, or used for falafel or kebob.

7. Turkish Coffee. And to start your day well, here’s one of the best coffee Middle Eastern recipes. Turkish coffee is special because you need to add sugar when the coffee is brewing, not after. Also, you need finely ground coffee and some cardamom.

Lasagna is a great option when you need a nutritious lunch in a jar for work or even if you need to make just one serving. Layer together noodles, cream sauce, ricotta, mozzarella, pesto, tomato sauce and meat. You can also add other vegetable or whatever you like to the sauces. Don’t forget to heat it up before eating it!

Finally, we prepared for you a magic formula that is guaranteed to be one of the lunch in a jar ideas. For any salad you need organic greens, like zen blend, baby romaine or arugula, for instance; then, high-protein grain or legume (try tricolor quinoa, farro or lentils); some salty and crunchy ingredients: hazelnuts, sliced almonds or pumpkin seeds; and last but not least, something sweet and tangy: dried papaya, dried mango, cranberries, blueberries or any other fruits you prefer. Customize your own lunch in a jar and enjoy your meal!
