Another of our family favourites - this chocolate cake recipe, is my go to chocolate fix recipe and gets used for all sorts of everything – birthday cakes, gateaux, chocolate muffins, cupcakes you name it! Here it’s baked with pears for a family tea time treat.
The mixture of milk and vinegar is a replacement for buttermilk which I find difficult to get hold of and requires some planning ahead so for me it’s perfect, I’ve always milk and vinegar in the house so can whip it up whenever I like. White wine vinegar isn’t essential either, malt vinegar works just as well.
This cake can be served cold in slices nestled in lunchboxes or warm with chocolate custard as an after tea treat.
