Well, well, I made this today for tonight's WI meeting but tweeked it a bit.  A glut of eggs meant I added four of the with a glug of milk(semi skimmed) otherwise the same.  Topped with white melted chocolate mixed with 8oz icing sugar an 4oz baking fat then scattered chocolate strands over to complete.  Went down a storm!  It made two squares and only one was needed as I made an apple cake too. 🌞

It'd be nice if everyone played properly, instead of trying to use others. dalek

Indeed it was, TA, the server is closing down and in just three days time; although for a couple of months mail will be forwarded - hopefully, so I still have a little time to notify everyone! (Of course, you are at the top of the list as your surname begins with 'A'......very fortunate!! laugh)

My kitchen is in chaos currently, but I wouldn't mind a bit of milk chocolate cake!! whistle
