This cake may possibly be made today…
This is seriously THE BEST CAKE I have ever eaten (or made for that matter)!
German Chocolate Cake
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
3/4 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups water
1. Mix the dry ingredients, make a well and then add the wet ones in the center. Mix until smooth, you can use a mixer if you want, but not necessary.
2. Prepare pan(s) by greasing and flouring lightly. Pour into 24 cupcake pans, two 9-inch pans, or one 9X11-inch pan.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20-25 minutes (cupcakes), 30 minutes (9-inch) or 50 minutes (9X11). Test with a toothpick to make sure it is done all the way through. Let the cake cool before applying the frosting.
1 cup plain soymilk
1/3 cup coconut milk from can
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water until smooth
2 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut (if unsweetend, just add another 1/8 cup sugar)
1 1/2 cups finely chopped pecans
1. In a medium saucepan, mix the soymilk, coconut milk, sugar, and vanilla together.
2. Add the cornstarch mixture and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens. Cook for one minute after it boils. Remove from heat and stir in coconut and pecans.
3. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes (mixture should still be warm) before spreading on cake.
atwill asked: Yup, my name is Tori. Short for Victoria though. But that doesn't really suit me so much an i am in the process of having it changed to Tori. I was never really referred to as Victoria and it makes it really awkward when role is called at uni and i forget to put my hand up for Victoria and they ask why i'm so "special" that i don't remember my own name.
Holidays are good. Holidays outside of your own country though are way better!
How are you today?
That’s great! I’m just Tori, although people try to call me Victoria like they’re so damn smart, and then they’re confused when I don’t answer. Hah.
Absolutely! I feel like I haven’t been out of the States in ages. I mean, I went to Canada in January, but it’s only thirty minutes away from my parents house. Definitely doesn’t count.
I’m pretty good. I have a dentist appointment (blegh) and then have a meeting at my school. Nothing too exciting. I’ll probably just spend the night watching Rookies on Netflix. (I lead such an exciting life.) And how are you, my dear?
Oh, it’s one of mine too!
Today, and yesterday, have both been wonderful. I can’t really say much more.
atwill asked: Dexter...may or may not have already watched every single episode possible. In the same manner. No sleep, no nothing except watching dexter.
And nope, doing nothing. I've just been on a holiday to Melbourne so money isn't exactly flowing for exciting things to do.
I think we have the same name :) I think.
Yeah, it’s such a good show! I have to find season three somewhere…
That sounds awesome! I need a vacation… A proper vacation. Leaving the city to go visit the city where my parents live isn’t exactly a proper vacation.
Your name is Tori too? Sweet!
deadlegsonwheels-deactivated201 asked: Hi :) i was wondering if you could help. My friend Shrouk is originally from Egypt.Basically,the people who know her over there have found bout her orientation and it’s illegal for her to be gay and aethiast and not a virgin. If she gets sent back to there she will get alot of abuse and be forced to marry a man and get circumsised and i really dont want her to go and suffer all that.She’s already appealled in court for a visa but it’s been rejected which is why she needs to get as many people as possible to sign the petition.Shroukie is a very wonderful person with high morals and ethics,shes got a very big heart and cares about her friends and is very smart,she is a very passionate inspiring person. She’s got a lovely personality and is very smiley and fun.Please sign the petition and get as many people you know who’d support it to sign it too.Thanks very much xx
atwill asked: I am excellent thank you. And yourself? I'm from Brisbane, Australia. So it's 1.53pm on Saturday. And i am doing nooooothing.
I’m doing quite well, thanks. Hmm… By 1:53pm on Saturday I’ll almost be done with work. (It’s 10:15 on Friday here.)
Nothing?! You must be doing something. Me? I’m watching Dexter. I’m at the end of season two, and I only started watching season one a couple days ago. Obviously, I have no life.
