Hi friends, quite a long time i din't post in my blog. That's not mean I din't bake & cook. Hahahaa....
Here's a cake I baked for my daughter's 7th Birthday. I let her choose what cake she wants. She choose this Rocky Mellow Chocolate Cake from one of my recipe book " Chocolate LOVE" by Elisabeth Siahaja.

Here's the recipe :


  • 250g unsalted butter

  • 330g dark covertures' chocolate

  • 20g chocolate paste

  • 10g vanilla essence


  • 200g all-purpose flour

  • 30g cocoa powder

  • 8g baking powder


  • 100g sour cream ( I replaced with plain yogurt )

  1. Melt A till well-combined on double boiler. Whip B on high speed till thick & fluffy.

  2. Mix slowly A & B batter, followed by C. Lastly fold in D slowly.

  3. Pour the mixture into two 9" round ( I used 8" square) baking tin lined with baking paper. Bake at 170c for 30 minutes or just firm to touch.

  4. Leave to cool on wire rack before removing from tins. Spread filling in the middle & decorate as desired.
