      I love Elizabeth David's cookbooks, so I knew this recipe would have to be good, and I wasn't disappointed. The cake has an intense chocolate flavour but it's not sickly sweet. I froze half the cake in slices so I wouldn't eat it all on the day I baked it. It's very good to eat straight from the freezer too - the texture becomes more dense upon freezing, but it's still fantastic. I'll be making this again!

      This cake really is a classic. It doesn't use any unusual ingredients, is easy to make and tastes great. It's also very good with some proper cream on the side.
