The first time I heard about this super rich Italian dessert was a few years ago when I was discussing baking with an Italian colleague from Sicily. As a chocolate lover, I was very intrigued.

One of the best thing about baking is the ability to bake something for the meaningful people in your life. And that means baking with flavours they like.

It has been a while since my last post. But, there is just too many things happening! This is my last bake for 2017. And this is a recipe from parischezsharon, which I just had to try once I saw it on her feed. I was probably a bit too generous with the coffee extract,... Continue Reading →

Mid week chocolate cravings! So, of course, this weekend bake involves chocolate, loads of it!
