This months theme is Seduced by Chocolate & I did wonder if I could resubmit last months recipe. In case you missed it, it was Devils Food Cake & was about as chocolaty you could get! But that would be cheating & instead I made a variation on a recipe that was featured in Nigella's Feast book (my favourite!)
Love Buns seemed quite apt for Valentines Day, I've adapted them into Chocolate Love Buns, topping them with pink frosting & a dusting of shimmer!
Click here to view Nigella's original recipe. For my variation I simply added 25g cocoa powder to the cake mix & a few drop of natural red food colouring to the frosting along with the vanilla essence. I love these & trust me they're not half as sweet as they look. The cake is deliciously soft & the frosting is so fluffy & light it could almost float off the top of the cake!
Hope you enjoy my Love Buns (makes me giggle like a 8 year old every time!) & maybe even make some for your Love Bunny this Valentines Day, beats shop bought any day!
