Afternoon snack - Chocolate cake

I have been in a serious baking mood these days and it started with the Baklava, which you can see here. After leafing through the Elle (the South African one) I came across Sam Linsell's (of Drizzle and Dip) ultimate chocolate cake, you can see it here.

So I succumbed to the craving and decided to bake the ultimate chocolate cake. It's seriously chocolatey, rich and oh so moist. What I learnt is that it needs patience, make sure the cake is all the way cooled before icing it. I couldn't wait and the result was a slightly lopsided cake. It still tasted amazing!

If you start right now the cake will be ready by tea time, afternoon tea, evening tea or midnight tea. If the kettle is on the boil it's tea time in my house.

Like my fb page for updates on posts and you can find me on twitter for general foodie ramblings.


  1. This looks so yummy! I've had the most bizarre hankering for cake. I had the most dry slice of chocolate cake in the noble history of cake yesterday-- broke my heart.

    1. Nomali, I would love to send you a piece. You should definitely try this recipe, the best part is that you don't even need a mixer, you can do it all by hand.
