I had this cake at a coffee morning hosted by a friend of mine. It had been made by a Swedish lady who very kindly gave me the recipe. It is a very moist, dense cake with a very rich indulgent topping.

The hot chocolates buttons are our white chocolate buttons that we sell through our website www.hotchocolates.biz. I use these buttons because of the quality. I only cook with chocolate that I also use to make our handmade truffles because the taste and quality is excellent. I hope this helps Ann.
