My trials, tribulations and triumphs while attempting to bake my way through Lorraine Pascales book, Baking made Easy, and hopefully proving that yes, it is.

'I don't give a damn' chocolate cake
The selling point for me with this cake is the method. Stick everything in a bowl and mix. That really has to be the best way to make cakes. I don't really understand the science behind why you sometimes have to cream the sugar and butter, or add the wet to dry and visa versa, but there is and I wish I knew why. But this cake just works. The other bonus to stick it all in one place is also, less washing up! This cake has quite a fudgey texture, but isn't heavy. The recipe for the buttercream is also good for this one, it isn't over generous and there is just enough for the cake, so you don't waste any. So a pretty good chocolate cake and with as little washing up as possible.
