Chocolate Temptation Cake

Still  about  my birthday..haiz..wanted to upload this yesterday, but Mr Hubby was home early so cant sit in front of the computer for long...hahaha...(takut beb, sekali dia tak kasi ber blogging kang..baru padan muka..hehe)...Anyway this was my birthday cake, which I made myself  for me..hehe..

Basically I wanted to brush up my roses making using butter cream, turned out  to be 'Gedabak Roses'(bunga ros yang besar2).. with not so smooth buttercream  which  I didnt have the patience to mix a bit more longer..maklumlah..dah malam2 baru nak buat..the sound of the mixer can awaken the rest of the members who a asleep...so lebih kurang halal lah..anyway its for me, so tak apalah kan..hehe..

The taste of this cake was almost as good as the chocolate fudge cake, only that it taste better the next day when put in room temperature... moist and soft...

Ingredients A:-
20g chocolate emulco
50g cocoa powder
150g hot water

250g butter
280g castor sugar(I used 220g)

Add ingreidnts (A) to the mixture, and blend to form a smooth chocolate batter. Add in sieved ingredient (D). Pour the batter into a 9" lined cake tin. Bake at 180C for 45-50 minutes until done.
