I have created two blogs to share my passion of food and fashion with you. The idea is not to give you accurate recipes or tell you what to wear but to share my day to day cooking and shopping experiences with you. I hope you will get new ideas from my blog and that you will share your experiences with me. I have always been creative with everything in my life be it food, clothes or career. I like trying new things,and I am always up for trying things once in my life.

Oatmeal and Chocolate Cake

Better late than never - I am so stupid-have not been able to log into my blog for almost 6 weeks now. Well I made this most delicious oatmeal and chocolate cake on Friday so here it is !

1 cup of easy cook oatmeal
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
1 cup of dark chocolate chips
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of salt
2 medium size eggs
1/1/2 cup all purpose flour
vanilla essence
1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1,1/2 cup boiling water
20 cm cake tin -

In a large bowl mix the oatmeal and the boiling water and sprinkle the chocolate chips do not stir. Leave aside for 20 mins.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a separate bowl whisk the butter sugar and the vanilla essence adding one egg at a time until nice and creamy.
Mix the butter egg and sugar mixture with the oatmeal mixture and add the flour, baking soda and salt folding the batter gently.

Add the cake batter to the tin and bake it in the oven for 35-40 until a tooth pick inserted in the centre comes our clean.

Let it cool down on a wire rack and then decorate it with a butter icing of your choice. I used a delicious coffee icing but can't be bothered typing about that now.
