It is the easiest chocolate cake I have made.
All done w/ a whisk in a medium size pot..stove..a few ings..the mold..s of your choice and you are done.
Jacques loves dark chocolate desserts..and coffee..this is an espresso chocolate Bundt cake but I made it in 2 pans..a German/Austrian pan..a Rehrücken I have had for over 1 year and was itching to try..and my small mini Heritage type Bundt.
I divived the long loaf in 2 and sent half across the street..
after you put the glaze on you can leave as is or decorate w/ whatever.
I chose fruit.I had figs and yellow raspberries and seedless concord blue grapes.
I loved the look when I was done and Jacques loved the taste.
BTW this cake..s..popped out perfectly of the coated metal loaf and the silicone intricate one.
I found the recipe here..it is from 2011~Took me this long to find it..
It is printed up for safekeeping~
I tried growing figs..even wintered the fig trees in the garage..after 3 years I gave up..same w/ Brugmansias..tempted..to try again..
I have given a bit of thought to next year's potager..and..
I have my wish list for next years' potager..
Curly Parsley ......... no more flat leaf..you should see my son-in-laws ♥
New Zealand Spinach ... it reseeds..I have gathered some in case
Borage.. .........I have gathered seeds as it reseeded here in minutes after it all fell
Italian Tomatoes ...........again ..you should see my son-in-laws
Beets ...........to plant after my garlic harvest
Basil ..........Plenty ..after Susan's recommendation
GARLIC ..........many varieties♥. It will be planted mid-Oct.
maybe a pumpkin patch at the back:)
Some things are still ripe for picking and making small indoor bouquets..
In fact I have Huldine blooms on branches in my 3 glass vases w/ the candles..
but here and there..things are glumming up..
take all my other clematis..they are all having bad hair days after a very floriferous summer.
You know what?
I got tired of looking at my group 3s turned to twine all winter..can't even get past the arbor..the white fences w/ all that brown..so the last 2 years..when I have put the beds to sleep..I have been ruthless w/ the group 3's and chopped them all down too..Not one has come back less vigorous.
So that's the deal here now..no pereferential treatment for group 3s..anymore.
I am getting too picky for finicky in the garden.
Japanese Anemones.. hanging on..but the last pic of ..it..shows the end is near~ Dahlias..next year Dinner Plates or nothing..these are all the same! Almost..so far..and not dinner plates..feverfew if you can believe ..and a hodge podge of late roses..
I will take whatever I can:)
Whenever I can..
Fleeting my blooms..they are fleeting.
Perfect weekend cake by the way:)Perfect.
Just sitting there waiting for you..or a friend to drop by..or family.It just sits pretty .
When I worked..
if a client offered me a cup of tea and added a nice treat..I knew instinctively..this client/woman..was special.That sounds a bit off but 100% of the time.. a treat was offered by the female part of the equation.
I was just hired or soon to be hired help to help find or market a home..there was no need to spoil me..but that made such a difference in getting to know the person♥
