A lovely moist chocolate cake with divine chocolate-flavoured icing (see p. 156)! A recipe to dream about and definitely worth having at hand to pull out of the drawer when friends come around for a relaxed afternoon and chat. A favourite!!
This cake uses amazingly little butter/ margarine and just one egg and still turns out springy and moist. The comparatively low amount of calories in the cake gives a good excuse to put some butter icing on top 🙂
I have made a gluten-free variation of this cake; it can be found here.
