Perfect Chocolate Cake!

Yesterday, I baked a chocolate moist cake for my fellow compatriots as they invited me to their buka puasa feast. I was so happy because it has been quite a while since I last had a good meal for dinner! They prepared Malay style Chicken Rice, and everyone ate on a very large platter. I never ate like that before, and seriously I had fun because we were like 5 surrounding the tray and we helped each other pouring the soup and sauces, this and that! I know other people might find this is disgusting but no! It wasn't and I definitely wanna do this again!! :D Oh yeah, we had Air Bandung as the beverage, and Puteri Mandi as appetizers. Oh my, my belly grew quite a little!! :P

So I was thinking since there are gonna be a lot of people, I should really bake a good cake for them as dessert, and also as a birthday gift for those I didn't bought present for. But at first I wasn't too confident about how my cake gonna turn out because it was my first time and I know baking cake is not easy if I only have my manual equipments with me. But, nahh. It turned out very good, indeed, I really felt so proud for my cake tasted absolutely delicious! Hehehe!


250g of butter
250g of sugar
3 eggs
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
300g of cake/all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda

200g of cooking chocolate
Some chocolate chips for decoration.

1. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, and the baking soda in a bowl.
2. Whisk eggs with vanilla extract.
3. Melt butter with sugar.
4. Mix all those ingredients together and mix them well!
5. Melt the chocolate for toppings.
