Happy Birthday Jen

The Birthday GirlTomorrow is Jen’s birthday so as she was visiting for the week-end a cake had to be made and it had to be chocolate.  I have made lots of chocolate cakes over the years but this has become a favourite.  It’s Nigella Lawson’s  Chocolate Fudge Cake.

It’s a really easy cake to make but very rich so a little slice is plenty for most people.  We couldn’t decide whether to decorate it with maltesers or mini eggs so we used both.

Sorry for the messy icing,  I don’t like icing cakes so I don’t do a very good job.

First slice

It’s never easy getting the first slice out of a cake but this one behaved well.

Caught in the act.But messy fingers are inevitable.

Dense and fudgyIt looks good doesn’t it?

Happy birthday for tomorrow Jen.

      Milk chocolate might be better for children.

      I really don’t like cake but if there is chocolate in the mix it isn’t cake it’s chocolate and I like chocolate.

      The recipe comes from Nigella Bites, I don’t know what colour it is. It’s worth the effort.
