Recipe by Love2Eat
Very reminiscent of the dessert my grandmother used to bake. Saucy and cakey all at once with rich chocolate flavour that's not too sweet. I'm a cinnamon lover but actually prefer this recipe made without the cinnamon. This is perfect when you need to whip something up fast using ingredients you probably always have on hand. Enjoy!
