I remember the first time I was served this dish at a Chinese restaurant, It was sooo fascinating… What I used to do whenever I taste a food as a kid is to try and guess the ingredients or spice or flavour it had.. Sooo I decided to make me some one day, It tasted so good but I couldn’t get the exact flavour I wanted. It was missing something, probably a secret ingredient this Chinese people had, soooo I kept on trying and trying And one amazing thing I learnt is that “Practice makes perfect”. So it kept me going cause I really wanted to get it, And I finally got it, not that same one I tasted few years ago but my own typa Perfection.

One thing I enjoy most about cooking is the beauty in aqaba varieties of vegetables, Each Vegetable has its own Taste, Aroma and Texture… And of course it’s benefits to the body. I’m not really the healthy eating typa person but this recipe surely makes me want to always eat healthy 😋.

You know how some people think making pizza is filled with all the amazing gooey, saucy ingredient is expensive(well mostly in Nigeria). I remember how happy this made me feel, when I found out that I could use white sauce to make pizza and it’ll actually come out soooo delicious without cheese. Beautiful is one word but Saucy completes it😋.

Beef or chicken
Cheese sauce alternative

Spray your pan with an oil and sprinkle flour on it to cover it up, pour out the excess.
Roll your dough with a rolling pin and Place it in the pan

Food has always been a part of me from a young age, I loved playing the cook with sand and flowers and leaves. Sometimes sneaking into the kitchen to get some few real ingredients 😂. I loved any game that had to do with cooking, My favourite site was Oyunlarcookinggames.com. Sooo I can say that cooking has always been a part of me but I didn’t realise it sooner…. So a family member of ours used to bake cake for me and my siblings for our birthdays and it was always not fluffy. I always used to think “okay that’s probably how cakes tastes like” but i refused to believe that, so I tried other people’s cakes and I still didn’t get that satisfaction I wanted. Soooo I decided to do a research on how to make mine fluffy and satisfying. I tried it for the first time, it came out weeell disappointing but I didn’t let it get to me… After 5 trials I got a perfect recipe and it was the best Fluffy chocolate cake I have ever tasted😁. And the I realise that I really had fun when I was researching and trying it out, it really made me excited and I loved the feeling. And that was how it all started.
Flour 3 cups
Cocoa powder 1/2
Baking powder 11/2 teaspoon
Baking soda 1 teaspoon
Eggs 4 eggs
Vegetable oil 1/2 cup
Butter Milk 11/2 cup
Salt 1/2 teaspoon
Hot water 11/2
Preheat oven 350 degrees
Butter your pan or spray it with an oil spray
Use flour or Cocoa powder on the pan to avoid the cake sticking, then pour any excess away
Mix your flour, sugar, Cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda in a bowl.
Make a hole in the middle and Pour in your eggs, milk, oil and water and mix to in-cooperate all the ingredients ( Don’t over mix)
Pour your batter in your pan evenly
Place it at the center of your oven for 30-35 min at 350 degrees
To check if it’s done, pierce it with a toothpick, if it comes out clean then it’s done. If it has some of the cake batter on it then it still needs some minutes.
There you go, you baked a cake!!! 😃😃
You can use the same ingredients for cupcakes.
