Hello everyone, I’ve been in the kitchen baking some Gluten and Dairy Free Mini Double Chocolate Berry Cakes.
I don’t know about you guys but I think lockdown has increased my sweet tooth. I feel like if I’ve achieved a productive morning at work I ‘deserve’ a sweet treat after lunch. This craving is also a good reason for me to make a few new baking and dessert recipes for the website – everyone is a winner!
Two weeks ago I made a small batch of these delicious mini chocolate and berry cakes. Light chocolatey sponge is sandwiched together with chocolate frosting and berry jam. Perfect with paired with a big cup of coffee.
