    Ninna's Note:

    You aren't meant to taste coffee in this cake but you do get a taste of the chocolate now and then, which I love - I guess I just don't chop it finely enough. I found this recipe in an Australian Weight Watcher's cookbook and added the alcohol for flavour. Although I use Cadbury, any block of chocolate from a confectionary store would do. I am guessing at the servings as it is meant to be eaten in small slices being a Weight Watcher's recipe. The prep. time doesn't include soaking dried fruit overnight.

      this is so easy and delicious. I use a block of Cadbury Old Jamaica Rum 'N' Raisin 250g for the chocolate instead of adding alcohol, and a packet of mixed fruit. If it is a little dry after soaking overnight, add some orange juice when adding the flour etc.
