In April 2016, I booked a trip to Harry Potter Bridge and Silver Sands of Morar with Student Tours Scotland. Following my 2016 Bucket List Challenge, I wanted to visit Glenfinnan Viaduct (a.k.a. Harry Potter Bridge) so I was thrilled when I found out about this trip. As an avid Harry Potter fan this was the dream tour, however, I was even more excited to see the Silver Sands of Morar, after I saw a couple of photos of the beach. I just couldn’t believe that such a place exists in Scotland. So, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to see it.
When I think of my childhood it is full of memories of my grandma in the kitchen, baking cakes, making cookies and savoury snacks. Granny’s cakes were always so amazingly delicious. One of my all-time favourite cakes was the so-called Easy Cocoa Cake. It tasted amazing, topped with a bit of yogurt and cocoa. I can still feel the sweetness of every bite it in my mouth. During one of my visits to granny’s house last summer, I decided to try baking the cake myself and to see whether it is indeed as easy to prepare as the recipe title boldly stated. As it turned out, baking the cake did not require a lot of time or products after all.
Here is what you need:
1 teacup sugar
1 teacup flour
1 spoon baking powder
3 vanilla drops
For the topping:
500 ml yoghurt
5-6 table spoons sugar
1 table spoon cocoa
1.Preheat the oven to 180C
2.Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
3.Put some oil on a tray and evenly pour the cake mixture into the tray.
4. Bake in the centre for around 30min.
5.Mix the ingredients for the topping.
6.When the cake is ready, poke some holes in it with a fork.
7.Pour the topping mixture over the cake and let it cool off
