Author Notes: So after the thunder storms, cold weather and rain hit Riyadh city and some cities around KSA.
Who knew the Saudi Arabia winter season started a month before Lebanon and still raining here till now ?? Talk about climate change and global warming.
For those who dont know KSA is an Arabian Desert while Lebanon is a greeny mountain lebanon on the mediterranean sea.
KSA has rare rains and the winter is not usually harsh. But this year it was obviously different.
So, Nothing better to enjoy the winter season but having this lazy cake.
Although, it is usually served straight from the freezer, but a cup of tea would do just fine to keep you warm.
Well, I honestly don't know why lazy cakes are cakes. They dont even contain eggs or flour, the two major ingredients to bake a cake.
It is obviously a No Bake Cake..
So, I 'd rather call my lazy cake as chocolate bars or biscuits. Homemade Kitkat might also be another name.
Though I took the recipe from an online source, but I added and removed few ingredients.
I actually got the recipe inspired from the zesty strong taste of the Lindt Orange/Dark Chocolate bars.
