this recipe is delicious; not too sickly but lovely and sweet and sets quickly so minimal dripping! i was rushing and didn't sieve the icing sugar and cocoa thinking 'how important can that be?' ... turns out very so i had tiny white lumps of icing sugar and cocoa in mine yet still tasted fab. goes very well with the hot milk chocolate cake recipe on this site in case anybody is looking for something to bake recipe made just enough to cover and fill a 9" two layer cake. - 03 Mar 2013
