Some days I feel like blogging, but I don’t feel like I have anything to share. Other days I have so much to share and so little time to share it. Today is one of these days. I had a post finished that was supposed to be posted monday morning. It is about Sunday. My Sunday, which was a very nice one. Read and enjoy, and bake the cake; it’s incredible tasty!
Sunday was a lovely day. Saturday was cooking, laundry, cleaning, shopping and homework. Sunday was.... resting. Such a wonderful peace and quiet Sundays brings when you lay down your everyday work, sit down, open your Bible, spending time with God, or simply rest.
It’s not like the Sunday automatically becomes a day of peace and quiet by itself. But as the Sunday was from the very beginning a day of rest and restitution, so it becomes what it have always been if you just don’t make too many appointments to fill it.
Genesis 2:2-3: ”By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”
So, at Sunday I rested. We had boiled eggs and warm bread rolls for breakfast, I had a nap after dinner, did some sewing, read stories from a childrens bible and read through the original text afterwards, had friends visiting for cakes and blackberry limonade. Sunday, was a precious, lovely day =)
And here’s the recipe on the loveliest chocolate cake I’ve ever tasted (takk, Marita!!!)
2,5 dl is about 1 cup
225 g vegetable shortening, melted
400 g (4,5 dl) sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
60 g (1,5 dl) cocoa
stirred into the butter
3 eggs, one at the time
3 dl all purpose flour in the end
170 c in the owen for 25 – 30 min i 24 cm cake tin.
Bring 2 dl cream og 25 g (2 small tablespoons) butter (must be butter, not vegetable shortening) to boiling.
Stir in 200 g dark baking chocolate.
Put the frosting in the frigde
As the frosting is very thin in the beginning, you may want to put on the middle layer of frosting while the lower part of the cake is in the cake tin and then lay the upper part on top and put on the frosting on the top, before you put the whole thing into the frigde, just my experience.
Cut into to halves and put frosting in the middle and on the top. Cool in the fridge. Can be frozen.
Good Luck. Enjoy!!!
I hope your day was wonderful!
God bless you
