Chocolate raspberry cake

Blair has been missing cake, he asked me the other day, "Now you are doing this sewing thing, don't you bake anymore"?

So I made him my standard banana cake and I put in a pottle of yogurt. And if I do say myself that was a great wee addition. And today while buttering the kids toast I found a chocolate cake recipe on the butter packet. Pretty standard, but with raspberry jam. Yum!!! So once I had drop the kids at their respective places, I raced back home and made it. Yeah about half is gone, it is meant to be dessert for friends who are coming for dinner, lets see if it makes it.

125 gram butter
3/4 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup of raspberry jam
1 and 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup milk
1/2 cup of chocolate chips (I used a cup)

Cream butter and sugar, add essences and eggs (one at a time) Add dry ingredients. Warm the milk, mix in baking soda. Add the chocolate, cook 180 for about 45 mins. It is meant to be iced but we haven't got that far yet. I don't know if I will.

I have swapped my shift on Saturday shift (I work Tuesdasy nights and every second Saturday) to another night. I have told Blair that all I want to achieve is making Ryan's jersey. So in a way I have changed my work so I can make my son a jersey. Sort of sad. Life is a little busy at the moment.

Right, I guess back to it all
