  2. Hi Alex!

    Yum, this makes me want a slice of chocolate cake! It looks sooooo good! Thanks for sharing your favourite recipe with us. I'm going to have to try it! Do you make this yourself at home?

    My favourite is the Chelsea banana cake:

    I often have old bananas that need using up so i figure making a banana cake is the best use!

    Keep up the great blogging, Alex!
