If you have been watching Peacock, don’t forget to make grandam’s delicious chocolate cake recipe.
Peacock launched last week and many people have enjoyed its entertaining programming. From Brave New World to Saved By the Bell, there are numerous shows to enjoy. Still, there was a little hidden gem that many people might have missed. Have you made Grandma’s delicious chocolate cake recipe?
When was the last time that you read the terms of service in an agreement? Let’s be honest. Everyone just scrolls to the bottom and clicks the button. You know that you have to agree to the terms in order to use Peacock, so who wants to read all that legal jargon. I’m a former lawyer and I don’t even want to read all that language.
If you happen to scroll through all Peacock’s terms of service you might have found something a little unusual. It wasn’t that you agreed to pay an extra fee, share your data with a third party or said that you would buy a full priced ticket to Halloween Horror Nights this fall. Instead, there was a little hidden gem in Section 9. That’s right, Section 9 of 22 sections.
In Section 9, under Third-Party Authentications; Third Party Services, it says the following:
“Peacock, we don’t make promises we can’t keep. So, please see below for this very delicious, Peacock-approved, just-like-Grandma-used-to-make chocolate cake recipe:
– First: Gather your ingredients
- 1/3 cup of butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
– Preheat your oven to 325 degrees
– Grease and flour cake pan
– Cream butter, add sugar and egg, and mix thoroughly
– Pour boiling water over cut up chocolate. Once melted, drain excess water into a cup to be added later alternately with flour.
– Add melted chocolate and vanilla to the butter, sugar, and egg mixture. Then, mix together dry ingredients. Fold in wet ingredients and left-over chocolate water into the dry mixture.
– Batter will seem thin, but do not add flour.
– Pour into greased and floured pan.
– Bake 30 – 40 minutes
Enjoy! While we wish you could share a slice with us, feel free to share this recipe (tagging @peacocktv, of course). And now, back to your regularly-scheduled legal document.”
Looking at this chocolate cake recipe, it is relatively straightforward. With everyone’s obsession with baking bread and other cooking endeavors, it is a recipe that anyone can master.
There are a couple of items missing from this recipe. For example, do you use a 9 x 13 pan? It doesn’t seem like enough batter for two round pans.
It is curious that the batter will be quite thin. Usually you do not want really thin cake batter. Maybe, grandma has a secret to this chocolate cake.
The melting chocolate aspect is a little unusual. That method is not how I would melt baking chocolate, but who am I to judge.
Personally, I haven’t made this chocolate cake yet, but I am willing to give it a try. How can a homemade chocolate cake be bad?
It will be curious to see how many people realize that there is a chocolate cake recipe hidden in the Peacock terms of service. More importantly, it will be more fun to see who tags Peacock in their chocolate cake pictures.
What do you think of this chocolate cake recipe and Peacock hiding it in their terms of service? Are you going to make this chocolate cake recipe?
