perfect chocolate moist cake. just perfect.


Chocolate moist cake. yes. i use to have the perfect CMC. i  got it from my ex roommate back in UiTM. I was on my diploma on that time. after couple of years, i lost the recipe. it was devasted. i couldnt find any CMC that up to the previous recipe standard. feel so sad, im not use to bake CMC as often as before as everytime i bake with different recipe of course, it was not the same.

Until, I met Saeidah. My ex colleague in KTT. She was a good cook. her nasi kerabu is to die dine for. Sampai sekarang saya masih terfikirkan keenakkan nasi kerabu ed. And she also bring back my long lost CMC recipe. Of course, i lost that recipe, last year. again... i was devastated and stop making chocolate cake (but i do some chocolate cuppies.. hehe)

Then, last week i stumble into this page,

I am happy.

So, Here is her recipe

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pans
2 cups sugar

The Best chocolate buttercream recipe by joy the baker

makes enough to frost 24 cupcakes or one 8-inch layer cake
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup heavy cream  whipping cream (ini saja yang available dalam fridge :p)
1/3 cup Ovaltine  MILO

Pukul butter dan serbuk koko. Its going to be very thick. add in icing sugar, salt and vanilla, keep whisking. bila gula dah sebati dengan adunan, tinggikan kelajuan mixer. ( i use hand whisk for recipe, so, whisk laju-laju sampai lenguh. hehe)

in other bowl, mix together MILO and whip cream, kacau, dan masukkan sesudu demi sesudu dan whisk, sampai anda dapat kepekatan yang diingini, selalunya stak habis pun adunan milo+whip cream tadi.


Now you can frost it as you like. this frosting also great on cupcakes. :)

P/S; knowing this recipe feels like meeting an old friend that i miss so much!. hehehe...
