The latest season of that BBC One Baking Show has ended and Selasi wasn’t crowned the winner, much to the dismay of half the UK population. The show as we know it will be no more as it up sticks to Channel 4 from next year. Goodbye Mary and the comedic duo Mel and Sue. Hello to a plethora of adverts right at the crucial moment we found out who is going home. Boo.
Alas, cake always makes things better and what better way to commiserate by getting your bake on.
I’m not the biggest chocolate cake fan, however, I have all the time in the world for GÃ¢teau Fondant au Chocolat. I first came across it in a little pÃ¢tisserie near my dad’s apartment in Paris. It was love at first bite and is a cake I can never resist.
It is a dense gooey cake in the middle with a crispy top, perfect warm with some ice cream on top. Even better, with limited ingredients and effort, you don’t need to be Mary Berry in the kitchen.
I’ve made this cake at home numerous times and now you can too, just save me a slice!
