Best-Ever Chocolate Cake Recipe

This is a Shaun Hill (of The Glasshouse, Worcester) recipe, from The Crisis Cookbook. It is the easiest, most delicious chocolate cake I’ve encountered and since I don’t have luggage space to drag cookbooks around the globe I take the liberty of posting it here. For full recipe details buy the book!

Tasty cake!
