All I have of this cake are memories.
Memories of the awesomeness this cake was last Easter.
We’d been in Lagos for a long weekend and had spent time at Eko Hotel. One morning at breakfast, my daughter showed me this.
Gorgeous, right? We thought so too.
It wasn’t long before we were home and I was rustling up the self-same cake. Without breaking a sweat.
All you need?
One – beautiful hands to help
Two – Chocolate cake. Works perfectly with Amanda Hesser’s tried and trusted chocolate dump it all. I took it up a notch by crumbling Daim bits into it. Daim being the amazing crunchy butter almond bar covered in milk chocolate. Heaven.
Three – Mangoes, sliced thinly and dipped in a glaze made with lime marmalade and a touch of hot water. If you can’t find lime marmalade, use some apricot or orange jam
Four – a touch of finely zested lime…and you’re good to go
This went with us to my sister’s Easter table…and was devoured in minutes. Talk about delicious fruits in season.
