Today is World Chocolate Day. Like most of us, there are many memories linked with the word chocolate but today I would like to take up the most recent one where chocolate saved the day. I had eaten the chocolate crêpe in the photo above while roaming around the city. The presence of chocolate syrup simply enhanced the taste.
I was used to baking with ready to cook cake mixes. When the lockdowns started in 2020, I started trying new things in the kitchen. One day I decided to bake from scratch, so I checked out a number of Youtube videos, made notes, discussed with mother and prepared a list. I got all the things, then prepared the mix and baked. The cake was baked properly and smelled so good. It even came out from the baking dish easily. I was so happy that I clicked pictures and sent to my mother. Then I had first bite and realized, it was not as sweet as expected. Maybe the quantiy of sugar was not right. I was disappointed and was wondering how I would eat this cake since its not so tasty. All my expectations went in drain. Just then I opened the fridge and there it was, the chocolate syrup. I remembered how the crêpe tasted so delicious and immidiately poured some syrup on the cake. Then the cake was just what I wanted, tasty. This way chocolate syrup saved my day. I hope this blog brings a smile to you as it made my cake sweet. Happy World Chocolate Day.
