Bon Appét’Eat is still young and a fragile little project. It was just a little over month that I decided to jump both feet in.
Having a cooking blog is a real lifestyle! You cook/bake, and sometime re-cook and re-bake… to make sure you are putting a great recipe (Yesterday, I made a risotto, not a success… I will have to try, try and try again before it comes her). So, as a blogger, after preparing a dish or dessert, you photograph it over and over in different angles, then you enhance it on an editing software. Then, you finally make it to the writing part, to share with your readers. It is not for everybody but I really love it and enjoy every parts of it.
The other day, I went to visit a few blogs, looking for tips to be a great blogger. I came across an amazing blog! I had to share it with you in case you do not know it yet: Sally’s Baking Addiction. She is so inspirational, she is a self-taught blogger and photographer. Not only does she shares mouth-watering recipes with outstanding pictures but also very helpful and constructive tips for bloggers. She is very humble and you can tell a hard worker. Definitely an inspiration for me.
Now, that you probably clicked on the link of Sally’s website, it is going to be hard to keep it up :)! Do give a try to this easy and moist chocolate cake recipe, it is a recipe my great friend Céline used to bake my dad when she would come over to our house! Boy, I miss those days… She used to do it with dark chocolate but all I had was milk chocolate, your pick!
Sorry, I did not take pictures of a slice to show you how moist and light it is. You will have to take my word for it and give it a try!
- - 60g of butter
- - 100g of unsweetened milk chocolate
- - 5 medium size eggs
- - 100g of sugar
- - 60g of flour
- - Melt the butter and the chocolate. Set aside.
- - Mix the egg yolks and 70g of sugar until smooth.
- - Beat the egg whites with the rest of the sugar (30g) until firm.
- - Add the butter-chocolate mix to egg yolk-sugar mix. Stir until everything is blend in.
- - Add the flour gradually and stir.
- - Add the beaten egg whites and mix it with a rubber spatula, be careful to mix by starting from the bottom and bring it up and repeat. Not to "break" the whites.
- - Cook in the oven at 350F for 25-30 minutes - your knife should come out clean when you dip in the cake to know if it is cooked.
