Maltesers Merryteaser Reindeer Chocolate Cake

This festive Maltesers Merryteaser Reindeer Chocolate Cake would make a striking centrepiece on your table this Christmas. A chocolate sponge cake covered in various Maltesers chocolates and some smartie red noses too!

 

I was starting to panic that I was not going to get a chance to make this cake and blog about it before Christmas. As it is, I am cutting it very fine with less than one week to go until the big festive day! Thankfully, my boys have Christmas parties at school this week, so it was the perfect excuse to at last make this Maltesers Merryteaser Reindeer Chocolate Cake.

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake #GBBO #Veganweek

This decadent Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake is great for those following a plant based diet. It is fudgy and delicious and the iced cobweb and added spiders are optional!

It is Vegan week on the Great British Bake Off tonight and for someone who has never made a vegan cake before, this proved to be a little tricky. However, thankfully after a third attempt in the kitchen last Friday, this Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Cake was created and I was very happy with it.

Well, any excuse to bake a cake I say, so of course I offered to take a dessert because I know Abi shares my sweet tooth!

Chocolate & Chili Cake with a sour cream filling

When I had my cafe before Burton was born, I would like to offer hot drink specials and I would get my inspiration from coffee shops that I visited on my day off or from the internet.

I often add dark chocolate to my chili con carnes as I know that this sweet and spicy flavour combination do work, and the chocolate adds a wonderful richness to the sauce
