Delissimon's Double Chocolate Mocha cake was today's inspiration for baking. Perfect for a friends birthday and just the right type of baking for a wet and windy morning. This will be served with a dollop of cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
You can find Monica's deliciously easy recipe here.
The tissue paper flower is a decoration I slightly modified from this pattern here found on Prudent Baby.
We followed this event with banana choc chip muffins. Recipe courtesy of NZ's Womans Weekly.
This is a great recipe - very sweet. We used less sugar and only a third of the choc chips recommended and they were still very rich.
Then my lovely sister arrived with loads of her 'Breastfeeding Bar' - which I just love, love, love.
Clearly all of the chocolatey baking was enough to set off the terrible twos in our house. I am exhausted from exercising all of my patience and consequence today!!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and get the chance to make one of these scrumptious recipes x
