  • 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.

Really lovely

Wow - I think this is our new favourite chocolate brand!!! These were fantastic and beautifully packaged too.

Great gift presentation

I bought these as a gift for my mum and she loved them. I also loved the really great packaging that is designed to go through a standard letterbox and the fact that my gift message was handwritten onto a card. That's a really nice touch compared to how many gift messages are just printed on a despatch note. Would definitely use Love Cocoa again

Delicious and made by a Cadbury!

I enjoyed the chocolate - very smoth and we’ll flavoured, authentic taste. But it would be good to be able to buy milk chocolate bars. Individual bars at the moment are all dark chocolate. I’ll try them, but sometimes I feel they can be a bit bitter. But great initiative by the great great great (.) grandson of The original Cadbury.

Gin Truffles

These are my favs

Truffles
