This recipe came across my news feed after another side had "liked" it. I immediately started drooling so as soon as I got home from work I quickly converted it for Thermomix users. I love it when a recipe meets your every expectation and this was beautiful. Incredibly moist and chocolatey without being too rich. The original recipe (for non Thermie uses) is from http://theviewfromgreatisland.com/2012/07/cold-chocolate-snacking-cake.html I have reduced the sugar and the icing mix. This is a morning tea winner. Eb x
