Paul’s Birthday

jamie's choc nut cake with robotI ain’t the best cook, but if inspired I can whack together a mean tray of brownies. But today is Paul’s birthday and I felt inspired to try a new recipe. See? I should have stopped there and visited Jean-Claude’s in Subi. But I decided on Jamie’s choc and nut torte, and after shopping, mixing, messing up and cleaning the kitchen, it almost ended in tears. Out of the cake tin, and the thing split down the middle!

So I pushed the 2 halves back together, dusted it with cocoa, stuck a candle in the middle and it still tasted OK. Kinda funny really.

I found the neat retro repro robot from ebay to add to Paul’s collection. Maybe he can bake.

    I hear that choc slices go really neat with champagne!!!and by the look on Retro Robot’s face, he’s already had a couple!
