INFO & TIPS
If you want a more moist cake add an extra egg... Melt whole milk chocolate and mix enough nestle cream to get smooth and dripping consistency... Pour over cake and decorate as desired... I used freshly ground roasted almonds.
I've done a number of combinations using this recipe changing the filling and toppings... Try mixing half the batter with cocoa and some milk to create a marbled effect...try cottage cheese icing with lemon zest or orange icing.
