Felicity Cloake's Perfect Chocolate Cake
Last Saturday, it was my boss's birthday, so I made him a birthday cake. I knew his favourite flavour was chocolate, so of course, I made a chocolate cake. The hardest decision was - which recipe should I use?
Fortunately, not long before, Felicity Cloake had published a recipe for the Perfect Chocolate Cake in The Guardian. I figured this was the one. However, instead of decorating my cake with Oreo crumbs, I decorated it with chocolates and piped icing.
Here is a slice of cake to show you the texture:
I have to say that this cake was really good - moist, chocolatey and not too dense, yet rich enough to be decadent. Perhaps Felicity was right when she claimed this to be the "perfect" chocolate cake.
