cocoa brownie-cake

November 19, 2006 at 10:20 pm | Posted in Chocolate, Slices | 10 Comments


this is a brownie-cake i made for the boy. i used chitz’s (tastegoblet’s) recipe, with a couple of modifications. i omitted the nuts and used 1 cup of dark chocolate couverture bits and 1 cup of chopped cadbury old gold (70%) chocolate.

and those lines are from the good morrow by john donne. we came across his works during the JC2 literature days, and it’s one of my favourites. i remember him memorising it during his NS days and reciting it to me one day over coffee at starbucks. πŸ™‚

  1. Nice. wah… so romantic!

  2. dear maya,
    i ve been reading your blog for quite awhile and man its inspiring. and indeed i feel in love with baking while studying in melbourne.for the past 3 months (having holis in sporenow) i was just wondering where did u get those pretty decors and the cake base (the silver cardboard thingy) cos i just cant seem to find them. either i haven been looking thoroughly or i ve kinda lost touch with spore. πŸ™‚

  3. yd: haha thanks! it looks funny la though… have to practise my writing-on-cake skills. (or the lack of it)

    celeste: hello! most of my decors i just get it from supermarkets, many chocs/sweets can make good decors! πŸ™‚ for the cake boards/boxes, go to phoon huat. google it and look at the list of branches. i’m sure there’ll be one near you. i’m going to melbourne next year, (i was there last year, it’s such a beautiful place) can you recommend me a baking supplies shop? prob somewhere near the city. i’m gonna get whatever i can’t find here!

  4. I for one think your piping/writing skills are great…and that is such a sweet verse! I would swoon if a guy recited that to me..haha.

  5. phon huat is it ? yup i ll go check it out. baking supplies in melbourne. victoria market has good baking chocolates. and chocolates. nuts. almond or hazelnut meals are cheap there too. the supermarkets has alot of baking stuffs too. the range is def wider den that in spore supermarkets. try House if u wanna get baking equipments. they sell cheap ramekins and other pretty stuffs as well.:)

  6. hey Maya,

    that is SO sweet! just thought i would let you and Celeste know there’s a tiny baking supply store on Flinders Street. you can browe thru the huge range of stuff they have at its a really packed store but feel free to ask the guys anything, theyre pretty friendly. =)

  7. celeste and coffeesnob: THANK you for the tips! when i went to QV markets last yr i didn’t venture out much into the food section, will def do so next yr! and coffeesnob, i’m already so excited to go to that store! i told myself i won’t be buying any souvenirs, just lotsa baking stuff! πŸ˜€

  8. i love donne! πŸ™‚ that’s a sweet verse πŸ™‚

  9. heh the first time i stepped foot into that store, i just stood there amazed at how much they managed to cram into that tiny store. it would help if you work out exactly what you want coz its hard to sift through everything they offer and would take ages too. im sure you’ll have tons of fun here, melbourne’s a fantastic place! =)

  10. I’ve tried writing on cakes before and I know what a PAIN it is! Don’t worry, it looks good πŸ™‚
