CAKE!

Chocolate cake

Wanted to share this little beauty with you. It’s another recipe from Becca’s Dozen, a booklet of cake recipes that I bought from a lady in Choumert Square. She’s also responsible for the utterly delicious and easy Lemon Drizzle cake recipe that has already been baked three times in the past two months.

If you can get down to the Choumert Square open day, be sure to buy one of Becca’s delicious cakes, and her recipe book.

This is called Scrumptious Tea-time Chocolate Cake, and will do very nicely for the post-opera madness.
