Announcements and The Cake Slice

Hello fellow bloggers and friends! Sorry for such a long time that I haven't posted here! I've been focused on re-gaining my health (through exercise and strict diet) so I've had to slow down with my cooking and baking (particularly baking) I am still on the fight of losing weight/getting stronger and I still have a long way to go! But to make things better I have a friend who has joined The Coffee Shop! So we are now a team! His name is Brand and he'll be posting some of his recipes and tips here, sometimes even random stuff! Why not? he has a witty/funny personality and I know he'll be a great addition to this blog!

Now... let me quickly share with you about "The Cake Slice" as you know, I am a baker there! I've been a horrible member of the group because we are supposed to bake 1 cake a month, we all agree on baking a certain cake in advance and then we publish it on the 20th of each month. I've been an active fellow-blogger and they know the very reasons why I am not baking as much but I don't want to "abuse" their understanding so... here I am ... baking "the cake of the month"

This time it was the turn for "Individual Warm Chocolate Cakes" and they were absolutely bliss! We are baking our way through The Cake Book by Tish Boyle and I just absolutely loved these! I've had my own experience baking "molten cakes" so I knew what I was looking for... I did some "changes of my own" with semisweet chocolate instead of bitter chocolate and also used a cupcake pan instead of ramekins (for smaller portions), let me give you a tip... if you want your molten cakes to really FLOW you need to get them out of the oven as soon as you start seeing tiny cracks to form on top... otherwise they'll just overcook and miss the whole "molten" part of it. Here is the pictures of the individual warm cakes I made:

 And you can see how successful they were... here:

I will not be sharing the recipe this time just because I am in a little bit of a hurry but I'll be posting it on my FB page tomorrow: The Coffee Shop on FB

Holy Canoli! That is probbly the most chocolate I've seen flow out of a molten cake in quite some time. Nice work :)

Wow your cakes look perfect. Nicely cooked on the outside and gorgeously molton in the middle. Great!
