Life should be like this, once in while!
Whilst writing this I am having a sneaky early elevenses with a yummy scrummy piece of Mocha Cake. My mother used to make this in huge batches when ever we used to go Guide camping and now I have mastered the recipe. Its very rich so small slices is recommended with copious amounts of tea!
5oz Porridge Oats
2oz Cocoa Powder
5oz Self Raising flour
Melt butter in saucepan and add remaining dry ingredients. Stir really well and pour into greased square/oblong tray. Cook in oven for between 20 - 40 mins, you want it to be slightly soft/chewy in centre. Remove from oven, whilst cooling make the fudge icing.
1 Tablespoon hot water with 1 teaspoon of coffee powder
8oz Icing sugar
Melt butter, add the icing sugar and coffee and stir really well over heat then pour over biscuit base. Let it all cool and cut whilst still in tin into small slices. And enjoy!!!!!!!
Oh, before I forget I had a lovely coffee and chat with Kim from Ragged Roses and look what I got!!!!!! I could not take the corsage off my cardi as its just too perfect. And also she gave me one of her lovely pom poms - I wish they smelt like they look -Many little buds of roses! Thankyou Kim.
Just received my copy of Country Living - I wish my patio area looked like this........
