So the cake I made is called Crazy Cake. It is crazy because it uses baking soda and vinegar as a leavening agent and does not include dairy or eggs :D. I tend to use butter instead of vegetable oil and cover it in ganache, so mine isn't dairy free, but it is soooo good. I originally got this recipe from my Aunt Jo, and it was used as the base for our wedding cake :) also covered in ganache.

Crazy Cake

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
6 Tbl. cocoa powder
2 tsps. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Mix all dry ingredients together. Make 3 holes in dry ingredients, then add 

2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 Tbl. vinegar
2 tsp. vanilla

add one liquid to each hole.
Then pour 2 cups of water over top and mix till combined.

Poor into two floured cake pans. Bake at 350*F for 20 - 25 mins or until done.


250 G nice dark chocolate
1/3 C pouring cream
1/2 ts vanilla essence
pinch of salt

Melt and mix chocolate and cream in a double boiler, make sure not to burn!
After smooth and melted, remove from heat. Add vanilla and salt. Mix well.
Leave at room temp until cool, mixing every so often.
Frost cake.

We found the cake to be an even better texture the next day after spending the night in the fridge, super yummy :D.

Other than that, my day was pretty quiet. I went to the store and got some goodies, then hung out with Bran while he watched his football. Less than a week until Sydney!
