Hi Aunty Lucy, it's Lynette. Amy's eldest daughter remember? I'm holidaying in Brisbane and putting up at Aunty Julia and her husband's house. She likes your recipes alot and she's has been following your blogs faithfully.

I was so surprised that she knows you. My husband and I go to the church which Aunty Julia and her husband Pastor Mun pastors.

This is the first time I'm looking at your blog and my! I'm impressed!! So many different cakes and almost at least one a day? It's so beautiful. As beautiful as the cupcakes you made for me for my wedding in 2007.

Aunty Julia and I were wondering if we could have the recipe for this Chocolate Mud Cake.

Hi aunty,
I just baked the cake today.. i did a research and they said substitute buttermilk with 125ml evaporated milk with 125ml water and squeeze lemon juice in it. its because evaporated milk is less acidic dan butter milk?? If the acidity is affected, the sodium bicarbonate might not work well. Milk is alkali and it works better with baking powder.. did i have to do all that or juz substitute it straight?
So anyway that's wat i did.. and the cake came out dry and not moist :( is that wat went wrong?? pls help.
Thanks aunty,
Sharlene

Hi aunty,
Thanks for your reply. maybe i overbaked it. in total i baked e cake for 90 over mins! cuz when i put e stick in it came out all wet... when u mentioned e stick will come out a little wet, how wet will it be? how to gauge if it's cooked? pls advise.
Thanks,
Sharlene

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Sharlene

When you stick the skewer into the cake, the skewer should be a little sticky to the touch and that is o.k. already cos when they are taken out from the oven, the cake is still baking in the hot tin.

Hello,

I want to make this cake and was wondering if I could bake it in a round springform tin?

Thanks

Ean said...

Aunty, in the steps, you mentioned buttercream,but the ingredients stated buttermilk. The correct one should be Buttermilk,right?

Aunty Yochana said...

Oops...sorry, it should be buttermilk.

Ean said...

Hi, can I know why must use self raising flour and plain flour ? This will get better texture ?

Ean said...

Hi I bake today, too dry and sweet, although I reduce the sugar.

Ana said...

Hi Aunty Yochana, thank you for sharing great recipes with us. I tried your choc mud cake last night but it turned out a bit dry and it cracked on top. Do you think my oven is too hot or did I put in too much flour? Thanks.
