    1. It’s a big recipe this. I made it on Saturday ready to bring some to Dad and made up a picnic for my son and his partner with some of it. Gave some out at home before I came to Dads. Brought half of it here with me and still have another half of it left at home so I can soon send you a piece Tom :))

  1. Wonderful…it also brings back happy memories. I used to make my children a Chocolate Smartie Cake and they loved it:)

    However, I don’t think the cakes I baked were quite as good as this one.xx

    1. I’m sure they were janet, but it’s funny it should remind you of when you made it with your children as when I made this chocolate one on Sunday night my son (who’s 32) and my sons girlfiend (who’s 28) were in the kitchen and what did they ask for when I’d finished putting the mixture in the tin?

      You guessed it, the bowl to lick, like they used to when they were young :))
