200th It Is!!!

Cake and mocha for tea.


This is my 200th post for this blog. And to celebrate this joyous occasion, Mama baked a moist chocolate cake. We had the most scrumptious tea today. Oh, it's also Mama and Dad's wedding anniversary. Fancy that, eh? They've been together for ages.

In case any of you hankering to know what we put in the cake, here's the recipe.

Moist Chocolate Cake a la Angelina

2 cups plain flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup corn oil
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup cocoa powder (dark)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup boiling water
2 eggs


Preheat oven at 150-degree Celcius.
Grease and line a 20-inch round or square cake tin.
Mix cocoa powder and bicarb soda with flour. Sieve.
Beat sugar with corn oil and buttermilk until it dissolves.
Put in vanilla essence and eggs. Beat.
Mix in flour, cocoa and soda mixture.
Mix in boiling water.
Pour into prepared cake tin and bake in oven for about 1 (one) hour or until cake tester comes out clean.
Let cool before cutting and serving.
Serve with a mug of mocha.

Burp. Excuse me. purrr....meow!

Happy 200th Blogpost, Angelina, and Happy Anniversary to your Mama and Dad! Love the cat mug. I have at least 3 cat mugs! Bravo the doggie drinks out of one of them now. Funny, huh? A dog using a cat mug. What are you getting for your Mama and Dad? A pair of cat mugs?

Congratulations on the 200th post and the anniversary. The inhabitants of the Planet of the Monyets have decided to send you a truck load of ripe pisang emas to celebrate the occasion.

If the consignment does not arrive by tommorow,then you would know that we ate the stuff ourselves.

Al-Manar said...

I must say well done. But are you sure you are not selling yourself short? A glance through your archive gives me a total of more than 280 and I wonder why 2008 is a missing year.`

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Mother of Ilham,
Mama and Dad said "Thank you" for your well wishes. purrr...meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Dear Pakcik,
200 is what the blogger dashboard tells me. I'm not going to argue with that. Oh, we took sabbatical in 2008. purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Ahan,
Rajin? hehehe...thank you! Thank you! purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

TK Sensei,
Is it easy to get buttermilk in KT? In KL, you can get it at Cold Storage, at the cheese section. It's the buttermilk that makes it moist, OK? Some bakeries skimp on the ingredients. That's why Mama always bake her own. purrr....meow!

Zendra-Maria said...

hey Cats... sure you guys didn't rush for the 200th to coincide with Mum and Dads anniv?

Anyways congratulations all round - and not too much gluten after this OK?

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Zen,
Yeah....yummy when eaten, then tummy ache because of gluten. What to do? purrr....meow!
