The days are getting darker and autumn is drawing in… which obviously means more time at home, cosying up and eating heavenly rich and wintery cake!
One of my lovely work friends left last week and I offered to bake him a cake, and he chose chocolate, which obviously meant putting a Tash/CakeSnobs twist on it and making mocha cake!
This cake was supposed to be one bundt cake, but as I don’t have a tin anymore (thrown out thanks to my mummy!) I made do with 2 loaf tins, which worked out surprisingly well!
This was definitely a manly cake, quite heavy and dense but oh so filling and delicious!
I topped these with a thick coffee glaze and a drizzle of dark chocolate. This cake was then made AGAIN as requested by my little brother to take when I visited him in Brighton. For the next batch I made the coffee glaze a little thinner and when the cake was warm, I scattered salted chocolate chips over the top, and a few dark choccy chips as well for good measure!
This batch definitely looked a lot nicer!
