Happy Valentines day! I first discovered this cake after watching Nigella feasts on youtube, an episode that focused entirely on chocolate. As i've stated before I love chocolate, but wondered what made this cake different the chocolate cakes i've made before? The only difference I identified is the sour cream ingredient, which adds moisture to this cake. Making the cake was easy and simple, a lot like all of Nigella's other recipes. As I made this the week coming up to Valentines day I decided on using my new heart shape tins and decorate the cake with some refreshing strawberries. The recipe for Nigella's old fashioned chocolate cake can be found here: old fashioned chocolate cake. I really enjoyed eating four slices from this decadent cake, after eating all my healthy food in the week.
|Am not sure how many weight watchers points this cake has but the strawberry has 1 point!|
