Chocolate Almond Cake

February 17, 2014

Sweet 

My great aunty loves to have a sweet after her meals.  My Gran Gran was an ice cream fan but my aunt likes all sorts of cakes and biscuits.  I made this really lovely chocolate almond cake.  It was the perfect consistency and  tasted like a spongy chocolate cloud.  The almond gives the chocolate cake a sophisticated taste and I also sprinkled mixed spice over the top which created an awesome aroma.

This recipe was adapted from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible (BBC Books, 2009).

Method:

1. Beat the caster sugar and butter together until creamy.

4. When well combined fold in the dark chocolate.
5. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
6. Prepare a baking tin with a large cake baking holder.  (This will make it easier to present the cake as a present.)
