Sharing is Caring

Once upon a time....I came across a beautiful choc cake at a friend's house...and as I would always do when I like a dish, I would simply request for the recipe. My request was turned down very politely with the friend stating that she actually had to pay for that recipe. In which I then replied, "may I then pay you for the recipe?" and yes I was also turned down again.

And so, to this day I will do my very best not to refuse anyone when I am asked to share my recipe. Where is the joy of cooking/eating when you cant share it when your friends/families or a stranger? I have found a Lamb Curry recipe from an internet blog that I have memorized in my head because I cook it so often and I have shared it with so many people, every time I cook it for friends or office mates, they sing high praises for this dish, it warms my heart. (watch this space, I will share this recipe soon).

So here's a beautiful chocolate cake recipe from Donna Hay, the famous Australian Cookbook Editor. (just click on the title and it will link you to the recipe)

I have not tried the recipe myself but a friend shared a slice of this cake with me and I was very impressed with the moistness and its beautiful taste.

Do enjoy and let me know how you go.
