Baking/sweets: Hot Mocha Fudge Cake
The Hot Mocha Fudge Cake was made from frozen leftover dough, it was just as delicious as the fresh one. Unfortunately there is no more dough left, and I don’t know when I will make this again. While food blogging is fun, one downside is that you are exposed to so many different recipes that repeating a recipe becomes less likely, unless they are favourites or regulars like ANZAC cookies, polenta crackers or flaxseed oat crackers. I certainly hope to meet Hot Mocha Fudge Cake again.

Let us now change our focus from the delicious Hot Mocha Fudge Cake to a less appetizing issue, toilets. Today I saw this on BBC, and found it hilarious enough to share with you.
The poster appears at Swansea University, it is not a joke. The university says it has produced them to help address cultural differences. I won't go into any more detail here!

We all know that many cheeses are aged to develop their taste. I think the oldest cheese I have seen in the supermarket here is close to 2 years. This is quite young compared to the 15 year old cheese considered the worlds oldest piece of edible cheese. And it is located in China out of all places. The 20-kilo cut of Italian alpine cheese called Bitto, produced in 1997, is valued at US$320 per kilo.
It is believed that Bitto was first produced 2,000 years ago. The cheese can mature for upwards of 10 years. According to Paolo Ciapparelli, president of the Association of Bitto Producers, the addition of 20 percent goats' milk is said to improve preservation. This is done about 30 minutes after milking, which halts bacterial formation. This theory has not been scientifically proven.
Bitto up to 10 years old is normally sold at cheese auctions around the world, but the 15 year old piece is by far the oldest on the market.
