Well, that didn't last long!! Gorgeous and simple and will definitely make again. Cooked for 20-25 minutes which was perfect in my oven.

this was easy to make but made the mistake of putting it back in the oven for longer as the centre didnt seem to set but as it cools the centre sets and is lovely and gooey.

Crunchy around the rim, a bit gooey in the middle. Don't let the name "cake" fool you - this is a gigantic brownie. Very chocolatey. Very yummy. A very guilty treat.
