DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE CAKE
This is a delicious chocolate cake that’s perfect for celebrations! It has that smooth and robust dark chocolate flavour with exceptional tasting notes of almond, orange and vanilla bean. This cake is not too sweet and it’s more for the sophisticated dark chocolate lover. Cut into small slices and savour the goodness. You can enjoy my Really Good Chocolate Cake just as it is or if you feel like being fancy, you can coat it with chocolate ganache and decorate with fresh raspberries.
WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT IT:
Almonds are packed full of protein + good monounsaturated fats that can help lower cholesterol. They are also a great source of Vitamin E that research suggests can slow premature cellular ageing. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that cocoa which comes in the form of cacao powder can improve heart health, lower blood pressure and reduce LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. Cacao is high in magnesium and iron and also contains compounds that act as stimulants believed to boost serotonin and endorphin levels in the brain that gives you a pleasurable sensation similar to the high people get after exercise.
