If Jo says this is the best chocolate cake, it must be. She doesn’t even like cake!! I have THE BEST chocolate cake recipe in my collection, passed down from a sister. I think I may have to have a ‘cake off’ in my kitchen. Watch this space. And leave room for cake.

Yes, really. No exaggeration. In fact this cake is so good that it’s almost a community service announcement to share the recipe with you.

It takes literally 5 minutes to put together. I timed it. The longest part of the preparation is boiling the water for the coffee- which, incidentally, you don’t really taste…a good thing.

The recipe is here. You’re welcome.

I topped it with the best chocolate ganache slash sauce you’ll ever make too. This one takes some trust. You bring the cream to a near boil, drop the chocolate in, let it stand for a couple of minutes and then whisk the living daylights out of it. Although you might doubt, persist, which through it…the result is a glossy creamy chocolate sauce that you’ll want to eat by the spoonful.

Don’t worry, the recipe for that is here too.
