A warm gooey centre that makes you go weak at your knees. This cake is sure to brighten your mood any day!

I used @naturecharm coconut whipping cream to make that molten choc ganache centre and it worked a gem!

Honestly one of the best cakes ever! And it’s so fudgy and chocolatey that one cake is all you need!
