“This is reminiscent of my childhood where this cake was often made to serve with afternoon tea. Remember use half of the chocolate for the cake and half for the top of the cake later on - don't melt it all at once! You can use white chocolate as well. Requires a few hours refrigeration time which is included in times.”
