Happy New Year everyone! After a holiday season filled with delicious food, some of you might not want to look at another slice of cake or bite of chocolate again for some time. I, however, have not been deterred and am feeling inspired by this beautifully rich dark chocolate torte.
Simple yet elegant, this cake is my favourite recipe for special occasions. It tastes amazing, is surprisingly easy to put together, and is always guaranteed to wow. Its flavour is dense and rich, but in spite of the whole block of chocolate hiding in it, it isn’t overpoweringly sweet. The bitterness of the dark chocolate adds a nice balance to the sweetness – and makes it that much easier to go back for seconds.
Because of the rich flavour, this cake is best enjoyed either as is or with a little plain unsweetened yoghurt. And if you’re celebrating, match it with a glass of bubbles or your favourite whiskey.
