Last week we were on holiday and I didn’t manage to do any baking along with the Bake Off but this week things are back to normal and with European Cake Week it’s just as well. I love cake. I could eat cake every day. I could even eat it for breakfast, and although that may be normal in some places, it is not a typical breakfast in the UK.
There were so many things I could have made this week. I used to live in Germany and Poland and both countries have some delicious cakes. I have also had some very nice almond and orange cakes in Spain so that was another possibility, but at the end of the day, how could I turn down this chocolate cake? The recipe is from Mary Berry’s Desserts and I’d had my eye on it for a while.
