Black Doris Chocolate Cake

October 17, 2010

It was a rainy Sunday today - a perfect chance to bake a decadent cake for afternoon tea with some friends. I love cakes, they seem so celebratory, they almost create their own occasion.

This plum cake featured in the latest cuisine magazine caught my attention a few weeks ago, and I have been drooling over it ever since... I love the way the plums look so luscious on the top of the cake, yet so simple.

I was lucky to get a chance to take this photo before it was devoured. We had a lovely afternoon catching up with each others news and generally enjoying doing nothing much!

The texture was divine, really velvety, and the combination of tart cherries and sweet chocolate was so good! I used Green & Blacks organic chocolate (85% cocoa solids)

The recipe is available in the October 2010 Cuisine magazine.
