Thanks SO MUCH everyone, the response to my new book “Sweet Things” has been amazing. It’s clear that many of you love your cakes and desserts as much as I do. To celebrate, here’s a new free recipe, and my gosh it is SO GOOD! I even caught my husband having a slice for “breakfast” this morning! Enjoy. Dx.
Melt & Mix White Chocolate & Raspberry Mudcake
I love this cake so much. White chocolate and raspberries, it’s a match made in heaven. The sweetness of the most divine and dense mudcake ever, balanced with the delicious tartness from the raspberries. I promise you’ll love it too.
