A Monday Morning Cooking Club Kinda Birthday – Quick, Easy and DELICIOUS
In our somewhat hectic household, we love a cake that’s quick to bake and also tastes fabulous. And what could be better than a slab of warm chocolate cake covered with a smooth shiny buttermilk chocolate glaze??? YUM!
This cake has an added bonus that it is wide and reasonably flat, so we have a blank canvas to decorate as we wish.
For our photo shoot for The Feast Goes On, we decorated the cake with dark and milk chocolate coated honeycomb chunks and salted caramel sauce. And that’s Jacqui holding the cake, ready to surprise some lucky recipient! For birthdays at home, we love adorning the cake with edge to edge maltesers (malted milk balls) and candles of course.
This great recipe comes from Jo Miller, Paula’s sister, and is a firm favourite in their family for every single birthday,
