In the Sunday newspaper magazine this week, Adam Liaw had published a recipe for Chocolate and Almond Easter Cake, a cake of Spanish origin known as Mona de Pascua. It looked irresistable, so I decided to make it this week.
What can I say - rich chocolate paired with apricots and almonds is absolutely delightful:
The dense chocolatey glaze on top really made it. It was really "the icing on the cake".
Happy Easter to all!
