Back to the cake, well this recipe was a doddle and very quick to throw together, which always helps when you've got children around and little time, and then there's also the need for a quick comfort fix (which I so often have). The added bonus is that it's delicious too. True to form, I did make some alterations, as the frosting or ganache didn't appeal, so I ended up using some coconut cream and a half a bar of Green & Blacks 85% chocolate which I melted over some hot water on the stove. I would also add a little sugar as dark chocolate can be so bitter, so some Icing Sugar won't be out of place here. If you're not a fan of coconut, which I am, stick with the recipe! I used Doves Gluten Free Self raising flour as a substitute.
Here is the link to the blog where I got the recipe. Again, I am new to this blogging lark and I am never really sure whether the links show correctly, so please give some feedback/advice here plze.
Here is the end result and its definitely worth a go. Another alteration I would make is to reduce the amount of coffee to one tablespoon, rather than the two, but again this is personal preference. The kids really enjoyed it too, I am not sure what time they will be falling asleep (oh gawd help us!)
Clearly not going to last long!
