Today's mood calls for chocolate cake. While at university, I met some wonderful people, some still dear friends today... Food and coffee/tea drinking bound us together and there were often picnics with Nicola's wonderful quiches and chocolate cake. Here is the chocolate cake recipe.
125 g chocolate, broken
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup hot water
1/4 cup whisky/rum
3/4cup plain flour
1/2 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup cocoa
2 eggs lightly beaten
Together, place chocolate, butter, sugar, hot water, whisky over a low heat till all liquid.
Allow to cool slightly and then add flours and cocoa, beat in eggs till thick and smooth.
Bake in a 20cm square tin for 30-40 min (160 degrees).
