Great advice that tell you not to lose hope in having dreams even if things never go the way you want it to. (For me, at least)

This layered cake’s diameter is slightly larger than that of a palm.

It has three components: the chocolate cake, crunchy biscuits and chocolate chip cookie dough filling.

Directions

For Chocolate Cake (Adapted from here)

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F/160°C (180°C worked for me probably because of my oven). Line a mini round cake pan with parchment paper and grease it lightly with non stick cooking spray.
  2. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl. Stir until mixed.
  3. Beat reduced fat margarine with sugars in a large bowl with a fork until creamy.
  4. Add the applesauce in two additions, beating well and scraping down sides of bowl after each addition. Mix in the vinegar too. The mixture will look curdled but don’t worry.
  5. Beat in vanilla.
  6. Slowly beat one third of flour mixture into margarine mixture, then add half the buttermilk.
  7. Repeat additions, scraping down sides until well mixed.
  8. Divide batter evenly between pans and smooth tops. Tap the pans lightly to burst air pockets if any.
  9. Bake in center of oven until a tooth pick inserted in center of cakes comes out clean, 15 to 20 min. .
  10. Cool in pans on a rack for 10 minutes.
  11. Run a knife around inside edge of each pan and then turn cake out onto rack.
  12. Remove parchment. Let cool completely.
.

Raw ‘Cookie Dough’ Filling:
Mix all ingredients together except the chocolate chips and cocoa powder. Add enough soy milk to form a thick batter with consistency of butter cream. Mix in chocolate chips.

.

Biscuit:

  1. In a bowl mix reduced fat margarine and brown sugar till combined.
  2. Add butter essence, vanilla extract and maple syrup/honey.
  3. Mix till smooth.
  4. Add all dry ingredients and mix to form a dough.
  5. If the dough is too sticky, add a teaspoon of flour at a time.
  6. Press into cake mold and bake for 15-20 minutes at 390°F/200°C.

.

Assembling:

Slice the cake horizontally into halve. Pipe the filling into a spiral onto the bottom layer. Crumble the biscuit onto the spiral. Cover with the top layer.

Serve immediately.
