Free eRead-a-thon Challenge & Update

Uk72Wx0LITERARY CUISINE:

Jessica@Literary, etc. is hosting today’s challenge with the following rules:

Food often appears in some format in the books we read and therefore we have a recipe challenge! There will be two options.

Option 1: Post a recipe from the book of your free eread that you’ve come across. Let’s say a character bakes a batch of chocolate chip bacon cookies. You can post a recipe for it.

Option 2: This option allows you to create a recipe or pair one with the book you’ve read or are reading. Reading a cheesy love story? Maybe macaroni cheese might be the thing. Book is a sinful delight? Pair it with a sinful dessert or dish. There are no limits.

Your post must include: Book’s title along with the author’s name. If you are using someone’s recipe (for example, you got a recipe from All Recipes), credit them and provide a link to the original source.

15731951So the only one I could remember is this recipe I found in Audrey’s Guide to Witchcraft by Jody Gehrman. I got this for free a long time ago and read it weeks ago. I have never really tried the recipe, but Audrey claims that it is really good. This just really stuck to me because it was one of the few parts I liked about the book because I love sweets. And here is the recipe, taken directly from the book:

BRIDGET’S CHOCOLATIOUS CAKE

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces super awesome (i.e. expensive) bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and butter an 8-inch round baking pan. Line bottom with a round of wax paper and butter paper.
  2. Chop chocolate into small pieces. In a double boiler, melt chocolate with butter until smooth
  3. Whisk sugar into chocolate mixture. Add eggs and whisk well.
  4. Sift 1/2 cup cocoa powder over chocolate mixture until combined – don’t stir more than needed.
  5. Pour batter into pan and bake 25 minutes, or until thin crust forms on top.
  6. Let cool 5 minutes, then invert onto serving plate. Top with fresh berries, drizzled caramel or whipped cream if desired.

And here’s a picture of some chocolate cake~ This was a bad challenge. It made me VERY hungry for chocolate cake.

Author: Nikki Jefford

Synopsis: Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene’s body. Until Gray finds a way back inside her own body, she’s stuck being Charlene every twenty-hour hours. Her sister has left precise instructions on how Gray should dress and behave. Looking like a prep isn’t half as bad as hanging out with Charlene’s snotty friends and gropey boyfriend.
The “normals” of McKinley High might be quick to write her behavior off as post-traumatic stress, but warlock Raj McKenna is the only person who suspects Gray has returned from the dead.
Now Gray has to solve the mystery of her death while working out a way to disentangle herself from Charlene’s body before she disappears for good.

I finished one so yay~ I hope I can do one a day. (that rhymes)

That’s all for today.
