Finally, April is over and the month of May is here. It seemed like only yesterday when we just started the year and was looking forward to a good 2010. Before I knew it, we're already into the second third of the year. April was yet another busy month...this time round with work more than anything else. Looking forward, May is going to be an eventful month for me and I'm really excited about all the things that will be happening this month and in the months ahead :).
I was going through my baking stash and found soooo many unused things! One of them of a 9-inch springform pan bought sometime last time yet was still wrapped in plastic. Another was a letterpress that I've been meaning to use but still hasn't been opened. There were MANY unused cookie cutters and a few mini tart pans. Gosh, I really have a habit of buying things thinking I will use them but end up buying more instead.
For a start, I decided to use my 9-inch round springform pan first. I used this droolworthy recipe from Eat and Be Happy which I had bookmarked for some time already. Since the ingredients required were simple and didn't need me to buy anything extra, I jumped at the opportunity to make this. It was easy to put together, but the baking time was rather tricky for me. Hers looked so moist and delicious while mine ended up drier and more fudgy. Perhaps I'll reduce my baking time by a couple of minutes the next time round. Taste-wise, this was intensely chocolatey without being heavy. The texture's light and airy with a nice crust to it.
