I have had a few dreams of the past few nights about making a chocolate cake, well the chocolate cake didn’t happen as I discovered this morning that we had run out of biscuits. This is a small dilemma as my husband has a terrible sweet tooth and is always looking for something after dinner. I am very happy with the result – I will tick the success box with this recipe, a new family favourite. Thank you also to Gordon Ramsey for the inspiration.
