Today was one of those days when, from the minute I got up, I just really, really fancied a good chocolate cake. My most favourite chocolate cake in the whole world has got to be Nigella’s old-fashioned chocolate cake from ‘Feast’, and in that same vein I remembered Mannix’s ‘Coco, the burlesque wonder cake’. Coco contains soured cream in the cake and frosting as does Nigella’s cake. I need that touch of acidity provided, to cut through the sweet chocolate.
You can find the recipe for coco at Mannix’s Lovebite a fantastic site, full of recipes which just call to be made and loved.
Coco is fantastic – sweet, yielding, gorgeous! I loved the way that both cake and frosting are whizzed up in the processor (not together of course!)
Where’s the recipe from? Mannix’s ‘The Lovebite’ site
Marks out of 10? 9
Would I make it again? Oh, yes, yes, please!!
