Super Rich and Moist Chocolate Cake
By Erica’s Coffee_Foodievlog
It has been an overwhelming month. I was never excited with back to school preparation.
Contrary to my friends, as I hear the excitement in their voices, when they express how happy they are that their children are going back to school. I mean there’s nothing wrong with wanting your kids to go back to school and in routing.
No more all day video gaming. No more cooking all day. No more wondering who is babysitting. No more getting up late. No more fighting amongst siblings. No more non showering days. No more I’m in vacation I can stay up late, if I want. This are just the minor details of a stay at home son/daughter from summer vacation.
I for one do not mind having my boys home. If I could I would probably enjoy having them home schooled.
So back to school can be a little more overwhelming stressful. I can already see the struggle of waking them up early. And hearing them cry because it’s too early. Yes! cry and he is ten years old. I can hear their screaming voices and questioning me from, mom where’s my shoes, socks, pants, shirt, underwear, or better yet “do I need to take a shower?” And no matter what the answer will always be the same, and their stuff will always be in the same place.
My afternoons are no different. Consisting of homework, soccer practice and 9:00pm dinners. I can talk about the details. But ill spare you the details since I’m sure that I’m not the only mother on earth that goes through almost a similar routing. I mean as much as I dread it, my life wouldn’t have meaning if my boys didn’t need me.
My boys don’t feel any different of how I feel. They enjoy summer vacation as much as I do. But regardless of how I feel. I manage to make it work every day. And for that I will give myself one hundredth percent of encouragement.
Back to school was no different from other years. But I couldn’t help to notice that my craving for sugar was beyond the normal. I have a consistent diet. I love chocolate, chocolate cake, cookies, ice-cream, and I pretty much love anything that is sweet and loaded with carbs. Due to my lack of resistance, and unable to implement portion control I decided to leave carbs, and sweet from my diet. Since July I been able to resist every pizza, cakes, and cookies that are displayed on an everyday occasion or celebration.
As much as I tried to resist I had to find a balance or I was probably going to go crazy. I wanted to bake something that wouldn’t make feel like I cheated my diet, or feel crappy after my sugar high.
Not only did I find the right combination of peer pleasure. This cake satisfied every sweet craving.
The cake is super moist and rich in chocolate. I tried to use healthy ingredients, and besides chocolate is consider to be part of the health group. To beat stress, weight loss, and help in the stability of a healthy heart. I mean really when you read an article on the reason why you should be eating chocolate. Who in the world would be able to fight this analogy?. Unless you are my friend and don’t like chocolate which I find interesting, or maybe you find debating an article to be amusing and challenging. What ever your style, I will support the articles that are in favor of chocolate and the benefits.
Recommend to bake this cake and you’ll find yourself wanting to bake it all the time for that chocolate craving.
