2 Tbls. melted butter OR margarine
1 1/2 cups Oreo® cookie crumbs
2 packets of philadelphia cream cheese. (That is the only cream cheese found in singapore supermarket)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs – room temperature
1 cup sour cream – room temperature
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. vanilla extract
one pinch of salt

Instruction:
Combine butter and cookie crumbs; press evenly into the bottom of a greased springform pan or square tin and put it inside the fridge for half an hour.
-Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
-Beat in sugar and then eggs.
-Stir in sour cream, flour, vanilla, and salt.

Awfully Chocolate Cake

August 26 was my birthday.  This birthday cake was given by my lovely darling and the cake was from Awfully Chocolate Pte Ltd(www.awfullychocolate.com). I really love their chocolate cake.  You even have to order their cake in advance just to avoid disappointment.  Their variety are limited and they sell only one type of cake. Simple dark chocolate cake between layers of dark and rich chocolate fudge.  YUMMY….. 😛

Best of all, they provide QUALITY, DARK CHOCOLATE.  I would rate them Number 1 in chocolate cakes.  Another favourite chocolate cake is Lana Cakeshop.  I have tried their chocolate cake but I still prefer Awfully Chocolate. So which one do you prefer?  Awfully Chocolate or Lana Cake?  I guessed this is up to individual.
