CBS online 24 hr coverage of US election


Melt-in-Your-Mouth Chocolate Cake recipe from Chocolate & Zucchini - via great new British blog Eric the Unread:

This recipe is very easy to make, no need for a food processor. Like all dark chocolate cakes, it is better if made the day before (or at least in the morning if served for dinner). Pre-heat your oven at 200°C (400°F). Line an 8 inch cake pan with parchment paper. If using a non-stick pan, you can just cut out a circle to line the bottom.

Melt 200g of butter with 200g of good quality dark chocolate. If melting in the microwave, be sure to do it slowly, blending with a spoon between each pass. Add 250g of sugar, and let cool a little. Then add 5 eggs one by one, mixing well with a spoon after each. Finally, add a rounded tablespoon of flour and mix well. Pour the dough in the pan, and resist the urge to just dive head first into the pool.

Bake for 25 minutes. The recipe says the very center can still be a little trembling but mine wasn't. Let the cake cool down a bit, then turn out on a rack to cool completely. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, refrigerate, and take it out about an hour prior to serving the next day.

Election Day in the USA

Midday TV news today here in Britain says it's the closest race in history. At least 270 electoral votes are needed by a candidate to win. There's an outside chance both candidates could receive 270 votes. In the event of a tie, Congress will decide - it's said a solution will be found in the Constitution.

CBS online provides 24 hour coverage of the election.
