There are many things I promised I would try to do better this year and baking was just one of them. Ask my parents about my baking attempts and they will tell you all about my sugarless Apple Crumble (Sour! was not the word) and my chocolate cake complete with bristles from the pastry brush (I had failed to realize that they were falling out into the tin?). My parents bless them, despite the faults ate both attempts in order to make me feel better, trying hard not to pull faces like the kids on the sour sweet adverts and picking bristles out from between their teeth :/
Well by golly, this time I have actually had a successful attempt at baking, I even shocked myself! Basically, what I’m saying is that this recipe is really easy to follow and the end results are very yummy! So if like me, you are a bit of a novice when it comes to baking then give this a go, if I can do it so can you.
It seems like a lot of steps but I have broken it down as I think it makes it easier to follow. It should only take around 20 mins to mix everything together then 25 minutes to bake an ta-daa! You have an Easter chocolate torte.

♥ 100g unsalted butter
