  • Nigella's Chocolate Dessert

    Hello, once in a TV show Nigella made a delicious desssert of scrumbled chocolate cake with cherry in a big crystal glass. I could never find this recipe. Could you help me to find it? Thanks and hope to get this special recipe. Greetings from Brazil.

    From the nigella team:

    We suspect that the recipe you are looking for is Nigella's Chocolate Cherry Trifle which appears in Feast (p406). The trifle has a base of chocolate pound cake sandwiched with cherry preserves, or you could use chocolate muffins sliced and sandwiched with cherry preserves.

    The cake is soused with cherry brandy and layered in a large dish with drained jarred cherries and a chocolate custard (chocolate pudding). Once it has chilled the trifle is topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

    As you are in Brazil you may be able to find the recipe on the Food Network (USA) website.
