Chocolate Guinness Cake | Celia's Saucer


Pictures from the kitchen of the Cafe Cat - shelves filled with spices, pots and ceramics

Not one for cutting corners, I suppose you could compare my style of cooking to that of Nigella Lawson: quite decadent. 

No low-fat this, or sugar-free that, please. Just common sense and sharing what some might call the guilt, but what I like to call the delight.

This chocolate Guinness cake is absolutely no exception. There's so much butter and sugar in this bad boy, I advise total and complete denial.

Just enjoy yourself.
