Chocolate bourbon-free torte

Clare bought me Green & Black’s Ultimate Chocolate Recipes: The New Collection for Christmas. Combine the book with a three-for-two sale on Green & Blacks chocolate at Waitrose and the result is a flat pleasantly scented with melted chocolate.

Nick Malgieri’s chocolate bourbon cake isn’t a cake made with chocolate bourbons (the well-loved biscuits) but a torte made with very dark chocolate (70% cocoa) and one and a half tablespoons of ‘best quality bourbon’ (which I omitted). The result was rich, dense, and chocolatey, with a slight bitterness offset by a dusting of icing sugar.
