The name might be slightly misleading for this decadent cake, as my father is about as capable in the kitchen as Stevie Wonder, so where does the naming come from? Well quite recently it was my dear old pop's birthday and being a fan of chocolatey goodness, I knew I had to do something special!
This cake could easily be used as a dessert, it's rich, decadent and definitely indulgent but not in a 'make you feel sick after one bite' kind of way. The cake itself is dense, moist and almost a blur between a flourless chocolate cake and a mud cake - best made in advance and it will fudgey itself up in the fridge. The caramel is simply delicious and could be used in a tonne of recipes! Be warned, the sheer density of this cake can make your caramel squeeze out the sides, but hey, just cover those parts up with more dark chocolate ganache!
