Minty Chocolate Cake

I’ll be honest: I have absolutely no idea what the recipe is for this cake; leastways, I don’t know the recipe for this specific one. Mark made it, and he tells me he used a basic sponge cake with some additions.

So! Pick your favourite, bog-standard sponge recipe. Doesn’t need to be complicated, just needs to work. When you add the flour, stir in some chocolate powder too – several tablespoons should do it – and once it’s all mixed into a batter drip in a drop or two of peppermint essence. Mark also chucked in a handful or two of chocolate drops.

Bake until a skewer comes out clean.

Mark decorated with mint glace icing and sprinkled it with brightly coloured sugar crystals.

It sounds like it might be a bit too minty, but actually, it works. Minty fresh.
