Choc Swirl Cake

November, 2018

I try as much as possible to make my own snacks as I know exactly what ingredients are in them, and I can tweak the recipe to reduce added sugars and saturated fats.

 

This cake is great to take to a picnic or to slice after cooking for a snack during the week. I usually keep the slices in the freezer and pull them out as needed.
