The best recipes come from tasting and this thermomix chocolate cake was a winner when I tasted it at a friends bbq dinner. She had received the recipe from a friend, who had got it from a friend, all making their little tweaks and now I had to make it to share with friends who have taken the recipe on. I really enjoy how these recipes come about. Great friends, great times and bonus recipes. 😀
Now I sit here typing this and having to think about dinner and I am wondering do I forgo dinner and whip this up …… Nah I better get dinner sorted BUT first I will whip this up and put it in the oven … for dessert 😀 …. The joy of having a second bowl! NOW if you have one bowl – ALWAYS ALWAYS make the cake first 😀 purely because it needs time to cook ….. You don’t want to be left licking the bowl because you HAD to make dinner first 😀 !!!! Enjoy !!!
