    • I started putting this cake together thinking that it was a recipe tested by Nigella. When I added the sugar to the flour-I thought it was a bit strange but I continued. When it came time to actually boil the fat- I was lost. I checked the recipe and realized that it was from a complete stranger-but I was committed. Turned out to be moist, flavourful and absolutely delicious!! Thank you sooooo much as this is now my go to chocolate cake!!!!
