チョコレートケーキ

グアムに来てお初のガトーショコラを作ったよ。
常夏なので部屋が暑くなるからあんまりオーブンは使わないんだけど、バレンタインだからお友達に食べてもらおうと思ってね。2個も焼いたぞー。
材料混ぜて、メレンゲたてて、型に入れたとこまでは良かったが。。
実は今住んでるコンドのオーブンを初めて使うんだよねぇ。
ちょっと年期が入った感じなんだけど、オーブン使おうと思ったら。。。
え〜、コントロールするつまみのメモリが禿げちゃってみえない!
かろうじて温度は見えるけど、もう一つがまったく???。
隣の家にお邪魔させてもらって、なんとかBAKE"焼く”の場所を確認して焼いてみた。
でもさ〜、オーブンの癖ってあるから、レシピ通りにメモリもなんとかあわせて焼いてみたけど、ちょっと熱が高かったかも?
ガトーショコラってさめると真ん中がボコンで凹むんだけど、盛り上がったままで普通のチョコレートケーキになってた。
星型にくりぬいた台紙を引いてパウダーシュガーをふりかけて、できあがりぃ♪
私は結構苦めに作るから(大人の味)、みんなにはホイップクリームとかのせて食べてもらいました。 喜んでもらえたかな〜♥️
I baked a gate chocolate cake for the first time in Guam.( used to bake them when I was in the States.) Since the weather is always hot here, I am not trying to use an oven...(cuz, it creates my room hotter..) However, it is Valentine's day. I wanted to bake this cake for my friends, and I baked two cakes.
I mixed all the ingredients together, and poured the mixture into cake pans.... and then...

OMG!! I just realized I cannot see anything on control knobs of my oven. My condo is a bit old building, and some appliances are not up-to-date kind. I forgot to check before I used it!!!
I asked my neighbor to show me their oven, and I got an idea where It could be "BAKE" on the control knob.( Temp control knob is still seeable.)
I think I baked them all right, but maybe the temperature was a little higher than it should be?  A gato chocolate cakes is supposed to creat a dent in a center after cool down, but mine stayed flat so that it looked more like just a chocolate cake. I sprinkled power sugar on top for a fun decoration.
 I always made this chocolate not too sweet.  Some of my friends ate with wiped cream with a slice. I hope all my friends enjoyed it:)

    1. I only figured out where "Bake" is, but other setup of this knob is unknown. LOL
      I miss you, too!!
      I am still dreaming of having sweets and coffee with you, and of course endless talk and laugh with you. Hopefully it will happen very soon.
