A very big thank you to the gorgeous Meredith who gave me this recipe. This Rich Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe is easy to make and tastes divine. It is not the sort of cake that I would make for school lunch boxes, but it is perfect for a fancy afternoon tea or dessert at a dinner party. We had it for a fancy afternoon tea with my family!

    A big thank you to Megan who emailed asking about when to add the coffee and cocoa liquids. I had left that step out! I have edited the post, so the method is now complete!

    Do you think that this recipe would work as cupcakes? I am looking for one to make for a 1st bday party.
