The cake is not a lie

Made this last night. It is a marbled chocolate peanut butter cake, and yes, it is DELISH. A bit drier than I like -- I made it with gluten-free flour, which in cookies requires a few minutes more baking, so I did the same thing with the cake but I think it was unnecessary. Also, the chocolate glaze called for corn syrup, which I didn't have and would prefer not to use anyway, so I used a mild-flavored honey instead. Very tasty. Sorry I can't shove slices of cake through the screen for you!

Also, I have been replaying Portal. Hence the subject line.

Oh yummy! That looks delicious. Also, Portal!! I've only played the sequel, but I adored the humour.

Mr Psmith and I both LOVE Portal. My mom, of all people, introduced us to it -- she's never played anything beyond Ms Pac Man in her whole life but she read about Portal somewhere and told us about it. We tried it and were hooked immediately -- both Portal 1 and then Portal 2, both the single-player and two-player versions. It's a bit addictive :)

Gorgeous! Plus the chocolate and peanut butter combination is truly one of humankind's great accomplishments. :) M.

I agree -- there really is no better flavor combination. Even the glaze is chocolate-peanut butter!

It really is just the best flavor pairing ever. The glaze has both in it as well. Nomz.

You must be the pride of [subject hometown]!
That cake is glorious!! I'm sure it tastes even better than it looks, and it looks divine! Hee, Portal 2 is the reason Mr. 42 and I bought a new TV and a PS3.

Re: You must be the pride of [subject hometown]!
It's OK to have cake for breakfast, right? Since it has eggs and dairy and healthy fats (i.e. nuts)?

Edit: Wow, a new tv just for Portal - hope GLADOS appreciated it lol

This looks totally scrumptious!

Also, are you aware of the olsb_recipies comm? It was started by the group that usually writes the older ladies of Potter fandom, and it's just a com to share recipes. You might find it interesting.

Oh yay! So glad to know about that, am going right over. Thanks!!

BTW, does the OLSB have a comm of its own? I think I might qualify for membership :)

Sorry for the belated reply.

Yes, there is a com, hp_oldladysb. You can sign up and get posting access, and it's a com for all stories about the Old Ladies, from gen to NC-17.

It has been sadly neglected for some time, and there were posting problems. But it seems to work again, and I'm planning to post things there and generally kick the thing back into being.

Hey no problem if you can't shove the cake through cyberspace. It looks nice. As for Portal I never played it but I know of the game and memes through friends. Take care!
