Jessica’s Chocolate Cake
I call this cake Jessica’s Chocolate Cake as that is what my sons and their friends used to request whenever we had a children’s Party or general gathering.
Food is at the centre of any Gibraltarian gathering, there will also be good wine and drinks, but food will always be the magnet that draws people together in our little community.
In my circle of family and friends, whenever we had a “do”, Chocolate cake was my requested participation. I could of course take any other item of food as long as I took a chocolate cake as well.
There is no weighing or accurate measuring to this recipe. When I first saw this in my Grandmother’s recipe books I wasn’t very impressed with it as at that time I was firm believer in accurate measurements for any baking. I still believe that is true, but like with everything in life there are exceptions to the rule, and this cake is one of them.
