DENSE CHOCOLATE LOAF CAKE.
Happy New Year! For Christmas I received 2 Nigella cookbooks, including How To Be A Domestic Goddess which is packed full of yummy things to bake!
Now in the glorious chapter entitled ‘Chocolate’ was this recipe. I love a recipe with a short ingredients list, as I usually have everything I need in the cupboards. My brother also had some leftover dark chocolate so I managed to sneak that off him too…
Super easy recipe! The only thing I wish I’d taken notice of was to put a baking tray underneath the shelf the cake was due to cook on… there was a LOT of spillage and I now owe my mother a deep clean for the oven. oops!
The cake was delicious, and yes INCREDIBLY dense and moist. It does sink in the middle because it is that damp. I would recommend baking it and leaving it a day/overnight to settle, but I’m impatient and wanted to eat it ASAP.
