Chocolate Pound Cake with Olive Oil Icing

Chocolate Pound Cake with Olive Oil Icing

This is a winner of a cake. Like an absolute, total, hands-down winner. A few ingredients, loads of healthy olive oil, magnesium-rich cacao and heaven in a mouthful! After visiting the olive groves at Cobram Estate last week I really wanted to try out an icing similar to one that the chef made for our carrot cake. I've always loved chocolate and olive oil together so it seemed fitting that I'd use it instead of water to make it!

Mexican Hot Chocolate

Mexican Hot Chocolate

This week really let me know Winter was coming. Thunderstorms, super freezing winds, end of day light savings and very cold temperatures. All of that with NO HEATING. Not that I'm complaining, I've always opted for putting on a jumper (or my dressing gown in the day time!) before putting the heater on but, it's so so so cold in the mornings and in the evenings.

Three-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

Three-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

Guys! If you make just one thing this week/month/year, make it this three-ingredient chocolate mousse! Seriously it's the BEST EVER. And it's completely plant-based. The texture of this mousse is out-of-this-world and is just as though you've made it with cream! Sweeten your mousse up with maple, let it set cold in the fridge and enjoy! I love topping mine with fresh raspberries or even some nuts.

Caramel Nut Slice with Chocolate

I've had a craving for something sweet and chewy and chocolately this week. And this Caramel Nut Slice with Chocolate on top really hit the spot. It was done in minutes and is now all neatly sliced up and in my fridge. I had two pieces the day I made it because, even though one would have been enough, I sliced my finger open cutting the slice up because I'm left-handed and a clutz! Now I can constantly feel my heartbeat pounding in my pinky finger tip haha!

In case you needed any extra help getting through this crabby Melbourne week, I've got you sorted with these incredible chocolate fudge zucchini brownies. They are ridiculously good and fudgey. So fudgey that when you bite into the brownies, it gets stuck to your front teeth and you look slightly crazy if anyone sees you smile! They're THAT good.

Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Fudge Cake

Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Fudge Cake

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!

Healthy Ferrero Rocher Balls

Oh yes people. You heard me. HEALTHY FERRERO ROCHER BALLS!
I have seen so many of these babies pop up on social media lately that I just had to have them. I winged the recipe the first time - they were heaven. And then thought I had better 'test' this recipe at least 4 (ahem, 11) times to make sure it was perfect for you guys to make too!

Chocolate Brownies

Chocolate Brownies

Brownies. Not much to say really because they speak for themselves. Moist, gooey, chocolatey, and even better warm from the oven! Or crumbled atop vanilla bean ice cream with caramelised banana and toasted coconut chips..yeah ok, back to reality where I actually only have the brownies and possibly a verrry ripe banana somewhere ha!
