  • Additional Information

    The yogurt may be substituted with 100gr cream cheese and 70gr whipped cream (double cream). The use of the different chocolates is not essential but does give a special note to this fudgey chocolate cake. I have also filled and iced this cake with traditional whipped cream and it is quite good, although it does lose its impact, but holds up never the less. It makes for a lighter cake.

    You should get 10 slices.
