  • Warm oven to 180C, stand 4 and butter and line a 20cm springform.
  • Beat butter and sugar. Add beaten eggs one at a time. Sift cocoa, flour, baking powder and cinnamon if desired and fold in. Stir in the wine, then the vanilla and finally the curls.
  • Put mix in tray and bake for about an hour until sate stick comes out clean (mine was in there for an hour and 10 minutes).
  • Let cool and remove from tray.
  • Salsa - Stir all ingredients au bain marie until mix is smooth and soft. Sift if necessary to take out any chunks.
  • Let stand for a minute or two before icing. I iced my cake, added curls and a sprig of rosemary! YUMMO!
