Chocolate cake from Little & Friday
Lucy Van Pelt, my worldly wisdom go-to, once said 'All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.'
When my sweet tooth comes a calling, I often come to with nose pressed against the counter window at Little & Friday in Belmont, and yesterday was one of those windy, grey days that just begs for a little culinary clemency.
Usually I can't resist the coconutty peaks of L&Fs chocolate lamington but I was wooed by something altogether more wicked: the chocolate cake. So simply named...so deceptively small...so sinfully gooey. Moist, dark cake with a hidden layer of cream, the deepest darkest ganache you could hope for and a topping of tart, smashed raspberries for colour. Think of the antioxidants...I told myself as I licked the spoon...
What about you, lovely readers? What is your favourite nosh for a cold day?
