I din get to bake last week as I was getting some new boxes and trying to better organise my bakewares. And after all the packing, it’s all over again trying to get used to where I keep this and so I took a little break since it’s has been a busy work week and racing against time to reply personal emails. To all who wrote, I’m sorry as I will take a longer to reply. I do feel something amiss when I din turn on my oven, din touch the butter/flour, it’s a habit!
This is something I bake the other week but I dunno where I keep the book till today.
The original recipe calls for Rum but since I dun hv, I replace it with my favourite – Baileys! They call this a slice, not a cake so do not expect the texture to be soft, fluffy type. It’s more dense and really chocolatey.
Chocolate Baileys Slices
125g butter, chopped
200g dark eating chocolate, chopped
110g caster sugar
170g coarsely chopped raisins
2 eggs, beaten lightly
225g plain flour, sifted
