My fav!

Simple food

Cake baking is best when it can be deeply enjoyed – no pressure of time; no interruptions; and no requirement that it turn out perfectly. Just relaxed time in the kitchen and the bringing together of beautiful ingredients to create something wonderful. This chocolate cake was the result of a holiday afternoon baking session. The house was filled with the rich aroma of dark chocolate and coffee, and it was a gorgeous way to spend time on a rainy day. It’s a very simple cake to make, but really needs the best ingredients – dark chocolate with at least 60% cocoa solids and real dutch process cocoa, organic eggs, real vanilla extract, and a really good espresso. It is very rich so a small slice is plenty. Serve it for dessert with some thick cream, and a perfect flat white on the side.
