Chocolate Layer Cake

Well, hello there! I know, I know, I have been missing from the blogging world for quite a while. You are right, forget updating my own blog, it has been a while since I visited any of yours. What can I say, except that life suddenly got very busy (doesn't it always, just when you think you are on a cruise mode?) leaving me with very little time for blogging.






Much as it has been a busy time this past month - and it will continue to be so over the next couple of months - I have been baking a lot, in fact, more than I normally do over the last month.



Baking gives me a lot of comfort, it is my way of unwinding. Baking de-stresses me like nothing else can. At the end of a long tiring day, all I want to do is not rest, but head to the kitchen at night and bake. I love to bake late at night, when I can be in the kitchen absolutely undisturbed - no telephone calls to be answered, no doors to be opened, no husband or child to attend to.



Gathering the ingredients, mixing them into a batter, waiting for the oven to do its magic, basking in the aromas enveloping the house and pulling out a perfectly baked cake from the oven - sometimes, I bake more for the love of the process than to actually eat cake!










Edited to add...My apologies to anyone who lands on this page and doesn't find a recipe. Please email me for the recipe.
