A rich chocolate mousse is prepared with high quality chocolate and fresh eggs. Two thirds of the mousse is baked, and the rest is used as topping. Important: be sure to use only fresh eggs for this recipe.
Specially for the basic galley and lazy on-board cook! The chewy-crispy result is best by using butter and white sugar, but I've used uncoloured golden sugar, and margarine - and even wholemeal flour, but that makes it much heavier. You can also do without the chocolate chunks, or without the nuts, and even without both if you're desperate! Use whatever is in your galley cupboards - add glace cherries, or raisins, instead. Be imaginative! - But the best results come as below.
A double-layer, extremely moist chocolate sponge, with peanutbutter buttercream filling, and a hard chocolate glaze.

This decadently chocolaty icing is perfect for birthday cakes, cupcakes and fairy cakes.
This is delicioius. It's not as sickly as buttercream but is much nicer than plain glace icing. It sets, but not too solidly, so it's in between butter icing & glace. This makes enough to ice and fill and 8inch cake.
This is a cake that my gran use to make for Christmas. Sadly she is no longer with us, but we now make it ourselves; even my brother makes this at Christmas. It is not very healthy but it's Christmas anyway.
This cake is bursting with buttery goodness! It's very moist and good with whatever icing you want to put with it! Fudgy frosting is my favourite!
This is my favourite dark chocolate cake. It is deep and rich and slightly chewy on the top.
These are mini fairy cakes so they are a nice size for kids. They are easy and so quick to make, too. Children can decorate them any way they like. Feel free to use whatever type of chocolate you prefer. We have fun making these every year!
This recipe was created to go with my wholemeal chocolate chiffon cake. It contains no refined sugar and no egg. For white icing, reduce the honey to 175g and omit the cocoa powder.
An easy chocolate fairy cake that will cure any chocolate lover's craving.
If you don't take kindly to recipes that instruct you to "cream the butter and sugar" then this one's for you! Prepare this cake batter on the cooker...it's my Aunty Orietta's classic chocolate cake recipe. Delicious!
Got some older bananas that need using up but want a change from the usual? This really really yummy recipe is one I modified from a plain banana cake and it is now so popular it gets requested all the time. Best of all it can be done with ease in a food processor, so it's also really fast to make for a picnic or sudden guests! Also kids love it, it's got chocolate in it! Doesn't need icing or buttering, is plenty good on its own.
