  • 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.

Way too moreish

I bought one of these some time ago and after giving my children a taste I was left disappointed that their was little left for me. They keep bugging me to buy more so have just order the 8 box for their Christmas stockings. Only 2 will make it into the stockings, the rest will be well hidden and will be my secret stash.

The flavour and texture takes me back to my childhood when chocolate was a treat and not filled with additives, now only if you could recreate the "finger of fudge" of old I'd be back in the halcyon days of youth.

I'd recommend the dark gin truffles which I bought in John Lewis, they are heaven, wish I could order those online.

One word of warning, once opened they don't last long, and are not for those on a diet!

Best chocolate ever!

It's really hard to find chocolate that is not only milk free, but also soya free. This chocolate fits the bill perfectly and is absolutely delicious!

Great gift

Sent these as a wee gift to a friend who was having a tough time. She was delighted - they're both pretty AND tasty!!

Love this

Received this for free from O2.
Love it, just gone online and ordered more. If you like dark chocolate, i would definitely recommend this, especially with the sea salt

Excellent service

Excellent service and excellent chocolate
