As today is my birthday, it would be remiss of me not to share cake with you!
Not a recipe as such, this time really. Its all about how we make a plain cake look something spectacular!
This cake was for my eldest daughter a few years ago. It's a rich chocolate cake (so do add a shot of espresso!
This cake went from plain jane chocolate cake to sublime birthday cake with just a few additions!
Home made boozy cherry jam
Fresh whipped cream
I will of course gift you my fail safe chocolate cake!
400 g of unsalted butter
400 g caster sugar
5 large free range eggs
300 g of self raising flour
100 g of Green and Blacks Coco Powder
1 espresso cup of coffee * not for kids
shot or 2 of cherry brandy (optional)
See! No excuse for a boring cake!
Lots of love
