It's been a while since I have been on the chocolate band wagon and now I can't seem to get off!
I suppose it's because when it comes to chocolate, I have very little self control - especially for the dark, almost all cacao kind.
And therefore I stay away from the lot, except for a single square serving for which I begin jonesing right around my afternoon coffee.
So needless to say, when it comes to baking this insanely rich, Nutella, chocolatey, did I say Nutella - cake, the battle was lost long before it began.
So it is a good thing that this is one of life's rare opportunities where losing is winning.
How often does one get to say that?
Or at least that's what I told myself as I shovelled a piece of this decadence in my mouth, pushing thoughts of 'my exercise Yoda' i.e. water aerobics instructor promptly into the dark recesses of my mind.
This is one of those wonderful brownie variety cakes with very little flour, freshly ground up hazelnut meal and loads of Nutella.
The chocolate ganache is the proverbial cherry on top and take what's already superb into the realm of fabulous.
Try resisting this come Easter Sunday!
