Happy Valentine's Day....

...which in this house means "Happy Chocolate Cake Day".
This recipe was in the Sydney Morning Herald about a decade ago and titled
"The Great Ocean Road Cake".. as the person who submitted the recipe was in desperate need of a chocolatey cake whilst on holiday.  This recipe pretty much flings in chocolate and ingredients in a mad frenzy in order to reach the product as quickly as possible.

200 g dark chocolate, broken
125g butter (melt butter and chocolate)

add 1 cup sugar
half cup SR flour
5 eggs.


The original recipe called for a cup of strong, black coffee and crushed nuts as well and does not recommend the need for icing.

Reminds me of a cake we call a chocolate picnic cake...super moist. I like the "flinging in a mad frenzy", Betty Crocker take note!
