I made my first cake using the Primrose Bakery book. A flourless chocolate cake - it was absolutely delicious!! Can't wait to try more - thinking of making the Maple and Pecan Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream Icing next! (Diet?? What diet??).
I had made some very healthy broccoli soup before I started on the chocolate cake and of course, that stunk the place out a bit even tho I had all the doors closed throughout the house. But, once the cake was in the oven, a really strong and glorious chocolate aroma wound its way around instead so I ran upstairs and opened all the doors to let it get in everywhere!! Even when I went out to the shops I could smell chocolate from myself...my idea of bliss!! I used Lindt 85% cocoa chocolate and I think that is why the smell was so wonderfully strong :)
