lazy cooks chocolate turai cake

In all fairness,this is a chocolate zucchini cake ,but we don't get zucchini here....we get turai(same family)......and plenty of it!So the time has come to start puting this in EVERYTHING!.......But jokes aside,the cake is really lovely and moist..and not a hint of the veg.
On a completely unrelated note,I have zero will power(which is why I am not a size 0,or 1 or 2...or heck any of the single digits!).........which is why instead of sitting and doing my assignments(I'm doing my masters in Psychology)I spend all my time(when we have the net connection,that is),on my blog,visiting all of you and generally not even going near my books........So until I finish the damn assignments,I'm not going to come near my laptop........but I love you guys and will get back soon(I hope!)Please keep visiting...and soon...real soon I'll visit all of you:)

  33. I tend not to write a comment, but after reading a few of the comments
    on "lazy cooks chocolate turai cake". I do have a couple of questions
    for you if it's okay. Is it simply me or do a few of the responses come across like they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I'd like to keep up with you.
    Would you list of the complete urls of your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
