Chocolate Monday: Week 12

I mentioned in my previous post how busy I have been and how much has happened during my Blogger-ville hiatus. One of the more recent events is that I turned 30! Ten years ago, it was an inconceivable thought. But, lo and bold, time sneaks up on you.

What's a birthday with no cake? So, I baked a chocolate one this weekend. The recipe itself is vegan friendly, but I used nutella as icing (my cheats way out to make baking faster) and I sprinkled flake on top. I gotta admit, I enjoyed this cake. And I do plan to make it again this coming weekend.

Almost vegan friendly chocolate cake. Images taken by Prixie. 
Do you have any baking tips? Do you have a go-to-recipe that always works? Have you baked without eggs? Let me know in the comment section!

Chocolate Monday: Week 11

I have been so atrociously busy at work, I have neglected many parts of my life, including my blogs. So much has happened in the interim too, that I feel that could be a post all on it's own. For now, it is another Monday and that means everyone needs to survive it. And the picture of this mouthwatering cake may do the trick...
