Vanilla Milkshake

My favorite refreshing drink since my childhood….  It is so easy to make. Just blend, dip your straw, grab your favorite magazine, your sunglasses, sit infront of the beach and enjoy your drink. Is Vanilla your favorite essence? I am not a Vanilla person but for my Milkshake I prefer Vanilla.  

You can also substitute Vanilla with Almond, Chocolate or Strawberry for this recipe.

I am loving this Chocolate Cake, always been my favorite cake ever! I have been searching and exploring the web for the best chocolate cake and I never found. This recipe has been inspired from my best friend and it’s the best I have baked so far. If you try baking a cake and end up with disappointments, still DON’T GIVE UP! Baking is not on my favorite lists as well but with much efforts and emotions you can bake a wonder. This recipe is really simple, I have not used milk nor baking powder and yet the cake is still so moist and decadent. Since I had strawberries, I have used them on the ganache as toppings. You choose how you want to decorate your toppings.– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
