6 of the best chocolate cakes
Have we got a cake for you!
Our picks all bring something deliciously different to the tea table too.
Nadia Lim's cake is gooey and rich but is not overly sweet. We like to think it’s also healthy too, flavoured as it is with a couple of earthy beetroot, yoghurt, dates and that great antioxidant, dark chocolate.
Even dairy and egg lovers are going to want a second piece of this allergy-friendly vegan cake.
Put overripe bananas to good use in this simple chocolate-chip loaf that’s going to be a lunchbox favourite. No need to ice it either.
With seasonal pears and a chocolate sauce, Kathy Paterson's cake is perfect for an autumn or winter dessert. Just omit the sauce if you want another slice for morning or afternoon tea (second thoughts, you might just like to pour a little over next day too).
