This is a soft crumbly cookie made with chocolate and almond flour. You can substitute the almond flour with plain flour if preferred. I found this recipe on youtube posted by yoyomax12.
Cream the butter and sugar till combined.
Add egg and vanilla extract and beat well.
Add the plain flour, baking powder and salt and mix well till you get a crumbly dough. Leave out the salt if using salted butter.
Lightly knead with your hands to form a dough ball. Cut it into halves.
To one half, mix the almond four and combine. Roll this out between sheets of baking paper into a rectangle of around 1/4 cm thickness.
To the other half, mix the cocoa powder and combine to form the dough. Roll this out to a rectangle of the same size as the white one.
Without peeling the baking papers off, let the two layers chill in the fridge for at least half an hour.
Remove from fridge. Peel off top layers of baking paper. Place the white layer on top of the chocolate one and align.
Carefully, roll along the long end tightly. Use the baking paper to help you along. If the outer dough cracks, let it soften for a few minutes and roll. Wrap with the baking paper and leave it in the fridge for 3-4 hours at least or overnight. The dough has to firm up well.
Slice into 1/2cm thick slices and bake in a 180C preheated oven for 10 minutes.

I love baking red velvet cake and decided to try red velvet cookies for a friend's birthday as his favorite cake is red velvet. This was the result. The recipe was from http://... I made minor modification in the vanilla quantity, chocolate chip quantity and the baking time. The cookies turned out great. They had a cake and a cookie texture. This is a great recipe for all red velvet cake lovers! The chocolate chips of course are optional. If you are a devout red velvet fan, skip the chocolate chips.
It is a brownie which is light as a cake. This one is soft and chocolate-y. Makes 10 generous servings. I have used a large baking tin which holds the entire batter. Please feel free to use two equal sized baking tins. You can also try making half portion of this Brownie Cake by using half the measurements of the ingredients mentioned here.
These cookies have a soft, cake like texture and although the name says sugar cookies, it's not very sweet at all. I am not a big fan of sweet cookies so these were perfect for my house. Most sugar cookies are usually decorated but I skipped this step as I don't like sweet cookies. This recipe was adapted from http://... I changed the quantities of some of the ingredients and changed the baking time as my first batch came out too hard (over baked.)
I baked this cake for my own birthday! It fed about 10 people. It was moist and chocolate-y. Note: Don't be alarmed with the thin batter. It only makes the cake more moist. It will make a two 9" tin cakes. If you are not sure of the size of the tins, just fill the tins/pans/moulds 60% with the batter. Give some room for the cake to rise.
For my hubby's out of the hospital safety<3 I wanted to make something special to him. Something like this elegant fancy cake! How lucky I am, to find a nice person to translate it for me "I'm Thankful to him throughout my life". It's made up of eight layers, stuffed with Amazing cream. Lots of work but absolutely, WORTH IT!
