(recipe both in English & in Greek)

Recipe & food photography sharing day for the blog friends.

Not some radical discovery recipe that will rock your kitchen world, I am not a chef after all!

I am just sharing the classic vanilla chocolate cake recipe that brings on so many happy childhood memories.

I think that all the kids love it. 

Perhaps I subconsciously prepare my kitchen for our little bebe coming home soon… 🙂

Ok, so, pretty easy and basic baking recipe at your screen – that for some reason I could not stop shooting.  

I also received a new white plate gift that I immediately loved and wanted to include in the pictures. (Lately I have a thing for white props).

See how “fluffy” the cake looks?

Well, it feels like that while eating it and I need to say that the aroma around the house is fantastic.

Sweet and orangie and I wish the cake will not finish so that smell can remain around here, but I don`t see that happening…

Here is the full recipe. Serve yourself a cup of coffee & enjoy the dessert friends!!
