I think you’re supposed to make simnel cake for Easter, but that’s always seemed terribly un-chocolatey for such a chocolate-filled occasion to me.
I am without an oven at the moment, owing to the ongoing kitchen renovation, but I thought it might be fun to post this cake from last year, which never made it onto the blog, in case you’re looking for a recipe full of chocolately goodness for this Easter weekend.
The recipe comes from Olive Magazine (here). Generally I thought the recipe was pretty good although the frosting was a little generous in quantity and perhaps a touch too sweet. I think you could probably reduce the quantity by 25% and it would still be delicious. The recipe also didn’t include the mini chocolate eggs, which are a must for Easter!
Decadent and delicious… enjoy!
