Before I get onto my recipe (and oh my it’s a good one!!!) Just a quick word about the lovely evening I’ve just had as I’m writing this on the way back from an inspirational evening in London at Come Dine with Eve. A panel discussion with the most inspiring female chefs talking about their careers, inspiration and the experiences of women in the restaurant trade. The impressive line up included; Sophie Michell, Ana Morris, Anna Hansen, Chantelle Nicolson, Claire Clark and Lisa Allen – just wow! I’m not sure about you but nothing inspires me more than strong and courageous women following their foodie passion.
I think there’s something a little magical about this recipe. I’m not exaggerating when I say I absolutely love this chocolate brownie cake. For me, it has just the right combination of dense chocolatey texture, sweetness from the dates and gorgeous almond flavour. Imagine a cross between a brownie, torte and the richest chocolate cake and you’re somewhere close to the texture of this amazing dessert.
The secret ingredient is chestnuts, which keep the brownie really moist and work so well with the cacao and almonds. As ever my cake is dairy, gluten and refined sugar free but definitely not lacking in deliciousness.
As a final flourish I topped my cake with a simple cashew cream and deliciously sweet English strawberries. I really hope you like this recipe as much as me. Love Niki xx
