Chef's tip

«This cake is lovely plain with a cup of tea or coffee. However, if you want to jazz it up for a plated dessert, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with a dollop of plain yoghurt.»

Who can say no to a chocolate cake? This lighter version of a pound cake is light and fluffy, and you won't even miss the icing!
