Anybody here knows Furukawa Makoto? I really love his voice <3 I’ve just finished editing an 18-minutes solo r18 audio of Furukawa Makoto XD (guess I’ll trim it down later).

My favourite character that he voices would be Uenoyama in the BL drama cd Given (adapted from manga by Kizu Natsuki). The manga is beautiful, it has been scanlated into English, you should read it :) And the other one should be Suwa in the shoujo anime Orange (airing in this July). I’m kind of reluctant to post his audio, don’t know if any would be interested. Do you want to listen to it now ^^” ?

Update: There would be 2 version [Dusk to Midnight & Midnight till Dawn], I posted the first one. The remaining one should be posted later. ?

All in one chocolate cake.

@the-david-ten-inch and other people that were asking me, this is my all one on quick chocolate cake recipe. I tried to get my pictures to upload but I’m having some technical difficulties so I’ll need to come back to it later when I’m not all pain medicated.

Basic chocolate sponge:

I like this mix, whether I am making a tiered cake, brownies or a swiss roll, it makes for a really rich and moist cake that’s easy to handle.

What you’ll need:

  • 225g plain flour
  • 350g fine white sugar
  • 85g cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 125ml vegetable oil
  • 250ml milk
  • 250ml boiling water

Also two, 8inch round cake pans work best for these exact measurements.

Method:

Preheat oven to 180c/350f/gas mark 4 and lightly grease your tins. I like to use butter but whatever you normally use is good too.

Place all of your ingredients into a large bowl. Literally all of them, just go for it, your flour, sugar everything listed up there except for the boiling water which comes later. Beat it all together (either by hand or by machine, doesn’t matter) until it’s smooth, at which point you should start to add in your boiling water a little bit at a time. Don’t worry if it turns your mixture to just straight up chocolate scented water, it’s supposed to. Divide it evenly between your cake pans—don’t worry about getting any air bubbles out of it—and bang it in your preheated oven for 25-35 mins, or until a test stick comes back clean. (The way you test a cake is either by sticking a toothpick or a knife into the middle, and if it comes back clean with no goopy mixture sticking to it, you’re good. Also the cake should spring back to touch)

Remove from the oven and leave them to cool completely inside the tins. Once they’re cooled pop them out of the tins and leave them to cool further on a wire rack before decorating. You now have the basis for a chocolate sponge to do with what you want. A personal favorite in our house is to fill it with whipped cream and raspberries and dust the top with cocoa powder, or you can decorate it with a chocolate frosting mix.

Joy’s Chocolate Frosting:

300g of milk chocolate chips and 300ml of heavy whipping cream. That’s it.

Warm the cream over a gentle heat and gradually add the chocolate chips and mix until melted. Once most of it is melted, take it off the heat and whisk the mixture until smooth. It should also start to thicken during whisking, but if you’re struggling throw it into the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, you’ll have a thick spreadable chocolate frosting that you can use to fill the cake either on it’s own or with whipped cream, and use the rest to decorate the cake all over, using a flat knife or spatula to get even coverage.

If you use this frosting, keep the cake refrigerated for up to 2 days. Cover it with some foil to keep the cold air from drying out.

Happy baking <3
