If, like many, you’re not a lover of Christmas pudding – perhaps a little festive chocolate cake might be better placed on your dining table this year. Not just any chocolate cake... but a gluten and dairy free chocolate cake with just the right amount of fudgey deliciousness. No added nasties, great for all the family and even better for your waistline! Enjoy!
