This is one of the best chocolate cakes I've eaten in a long time! I was thinking of ideas for AlphaBakes this month which is the letter 'O' and I thought about olive oil. A quick online search pointed me in the direction of Nigella.com. To be honest, I've never tried a Nigella recipe that did not turn out well so I knew I was on to a winner especially when the comments were so positive. It's a really simple cake and it's also gluten free. The cake is rich and moist and intensely chocolatey. It looks like it's going to be a dense and heavy cake but it's not at all. It's best served warm with some ice cream or cream. One of my cake testers has declared this the best cake I've baked to date.
I'm sending this to AlphaBakes which is hosted by Caroline from Caroline Makes and co-hosted by myself on alternate months. The letter this month is O for Olive Oil.
I'm also sending this to Made with Love Mondays hosted by Javelin Warrior where the idea is to make everything from scratch.
