What's a birthday without cake right? Not a birthday at all I say!
I make my famous chocolate cake every year but this year I put a twist on the classic, pomegranate! It might sound strange but the slight sourness that pomegranate molasses has compliments the bitterness of dark chocolate so well. A total flavour bomb. Especially when you go all out like I have (well it is a birthday weekend!) with whipped cream and ganache frosting...heaven!
If pomegranate isn't your thing, don't worry! Just omit the molasses in the recipe and add another 1/4 cup of almond milk and you'll have the best ever chocolate cake!
It's my mum's birthday on Sunday (21 again!) and mine on Monday so we always have a joint cake even though every year I'm begging for chocolate eclairs..haha! Everyone's got a favourite right?
I hope you guys enjoy every slice of this one! Happy baking!
