orange + chocolate olive oil cake
thank you so much to those that help me with spring cleaning. if you already paypal me your postage, your package is on its way.
this is completely off topic but i thought to just put it out there. a knitter from europe left me a message about some books that i posted last week..so i went to the post office to get a shipping estimate for her. guess what! to ship 3 books across the atlantic ocean cost a whoping $42 (that's the cheapest option)..it's so ridiculous! the postage even cost more than the content. i totally understand that the postal workers need to get paid and with the gas price and all..BUT still, i cant believe it cost that much to ship 3 books, i mean the plane or the boat is not going carry just one package right? i feel so bad. i wonder who is going to buy or ship anything from US anymore...
anyways, some happy thought...last nite, i made a loaf of yummy olive oil cake. i've never make olive oil cake, surprised how good it taste even with the absence of butter. i couldn't find blood orange as the recipe called for..so i substitute with some mandarin oranges. i grated some zest and used the juice as instructed. it was super easy! most of the ingredients you could find it in your pantry. you don't even need a mixer for this recipe. i added some michel cluizel chocolate chips towards the end..cause we love chocolate :) bake a loaf if you're running out of breakfast idea. it's really yummy! recipe is from here.
