Green & Black's cocoa
So.....here's my last weekend's Easter offering made using the excellent Green & Black's organic cocoa. I wanted to try Nigella's recipe for Chocolate and Guiness cake (available on her website) and it actually turned out well, although I found the texture quite dense. I was really pleased that it didn't taste at all sickly, as some chocolate cakes can be, and I suspect that this is due to using unsweetened cocoa and not the usual 'block' chocolate. Of course, the metallic tasting Guiness element could also have played it's part! I also adapted the topping slightly to a lower fat version of the lavish frosting in the recipe. All in all, it's a bake that I shall come back to in the future.
