Some days ago I was looking for some books I have in boxes and I found an old recipe notebook of my mother. She didn’t enjoy too much cooking or baking and so I was super curious what this is. In fact it has just 10 recipes, most of them easy cakes and some in addition have a side note ‘very fast’.
I don’t remember all of them but one I do very much: aunt Silvia’s chocolate nut cake. My mom prepared it once in a while. It is an easy peasy one, just all ingredients in a bowl, stir well, then into the loaf pan and in the oven. So easy and fast. I think I remember she covered the cake with a chocolate coating, but I am not really sure. I can’t ask no one as both passed away long time ago.
It’s her first recipe I tried out, others will follow. But I made the chocolate nut cake already several times. It’s really simple, easy and fast. Especially when you need something quick to bring to friends. I prepared the cake in a loaf pan and also as muffins.
Maybe some of you know this cake and have it already like a family recipe for centuries? Let me know!
