  • We were very excited for this recipe and changed it into cupcakes and unfortunately it was a disaster! The cupcakes were so oily and had an awful aftertaste! Any tips what went wrong?

  • What gluten free flour was used in the recipe? Is it a plain or self raising flour? Have you got some example brand names?

    Thanks,

  • The recipe doesn’t specify what kind of oil should be used in the sponge, I took a gamble and used melted coconut oil, it paid off and the sponge is really really good. This cake is amazing! As good as any chocolate cakes I made before I went vegan and ditched refined sugar, oils and carbs. I don’t like too much icing so I always only make a half batch of icing which I found to be more than enough. I’ll definitely make this again, will be my go to chocolate cake recipe from now on.

I love the unusual flavours especially the Earl Grey. It is beautifully creamy milk chocolate. Highly recommended.

My favourite chocolate. Bought for my dad who loved it too. It was a little bit of nostalgia, as well as a lovely treat, as he worked for Cadbury's.

Thanks for the review Fiona! I would recommend trying the Salted Caramel Milk chocolate bar next https://lovecocoa.com/collections/milk-chocolate-bars/products/salted-caramel-milk-chocolate-bar . It's a modern-day British chocolate classic!
