  • Reviews

  • “Definitely a very tasty chocolate cake, unfortunetly must learn to stick to the ingrediants especially if it calls for plain flour and not self raising flour. Would save a lot of cleaning up afterwards. Other than that it was very tasty and ended up a delicious pudding.”

  • “Divine. Fantastic texture, sort of fudgey and it makes your house smell so chocolatey while you make it! The cake is so good I don’t mind having to put in an extra hour at the gym to work off all those calories! Thanks Evie*!”
