Following up my idea a few posts ago to create a collection of family recipes for my daughter, I’ve started on a particularly wicked chocolate brandy cake concoction. My mum-in-law’s recipe features (as the name would suggest) fairly generous amounts of chocolate and brandy, together with cherries and digestive biscuits. I’ve made a start with the chocolate below. Stay tuned as I add more ingredients to the mix and reveal the full method. In the meantime, I suggest that we all get down to the gym to build up credits in readiness.
