It's finally summer! After a month and a half of studying for my exams, school is finally over (until the end of August) and I can spend 3 weeks doing what I want and not thinking about school!
This is awesome.
However, I now feel an emptiness inside, because I suddenly have some free time! (Yay!) I'm not used to that since I always have something to do for school. When I have to study, I can always think of hundreds of things I would rather do. But right now, I can't think of anything.
I've been doing some things that I never found the time to do before. First of all, I want to inform you all that you can now become a fan of my blog on Facebook and get updates when I post! I also have a Twitter account now. (A bit of shameless self-promotion there...) And...I'm working on an About page! I'm having a hard time writing something about myself and that's why I don't have one yet.
Anyway, I haven't baked anything since May! I really missed it, but now I finally have time and I am going to bake. A lot. I recently received the Martha Stewart Living recipe books, four of them. I just had to buy them because with Martha, you can never go wrong (judging by experience). I can't wait to use them because nothing compares to opening an actual book and searching for a recipe in it.
And now for the cake part. This is a delicious cake and it's my comfort food for days, when I take exams and realize that I'll fail them. I could also eat it every single day. I buy it in the supermarket and it's really cheap, compared to other cakes (less than 2 € for a piece). Last year, when I discovered it, I could only eat a half of it in one sitting, but now I can devour it whole, by myself. I can't even wait until after lunch, I usually just eat it while I'm cooking.
It's called the ''Cookie cake'' because it has a tiny Leibniz chocolate cookie on it. And as you can see, it has 7 layers. The chocolate layer on the bottom is the best. There's some yellow cake, some chocolate cake, the crumb, and the rest is frosting. Chocolate, vanilla, I don't even know what it's made of. It's just so good when you taste the whole cake with all the seven layers... Nom.
I wish I had the recipe. Until then, I'll just keep buying it on days when I'm feeling down. Do you have a favorite cake that you always eat to feel better? (I have plenty, this is just the cheapest of all, lol). Let me know!
