The husband likes his chocolate cake a certain texture and I finally stumbled on the recipe that works. Best of all, the boys love it too!
It was supposed to be the usual Chocolate Almond Cake recipe that I normally follow until I realised halfway into the preparation that I didn’t have enough almond meal. Too lazy to head down to the shops to get some more, I decided to wing it. Funny how well things work out when you’re not even trying.
- 125g dark chocolate, melted
- 125g butter, softened

- 60ml milk
