hands down...


I just finished reading "A Homemade Life"

It's one of those books that you just don't want to end.

I loved every page.



Friday afternoon seems to be my favourite time to spend time in the kitchen. This week it seemed only fitting to bake the cake.

Now I am rather partial to chocolate, and cake, and the two together make me very happy. This cake makes me giddy. A joy to make, it reminded me a little of a filling I used to make for chocolate tarts, only it's so much better. We served it with vanilla bean ice-cream and a lovely dessert wine from Witches Falls. If you are coming for dinner any time soon, chances are this will be on the menu because it's a keeper, hearts, minds, hands down, no contest...
