Spring is nowhere to be seen, which also means there is no produce yet. Chocolate to the rescue! I don’t mind at all, although I do long to see the first rhubarb stalks at the market. Sooner than later, I hope. But for now, I have chocolate and that’s pretty great. This chocolatey beauty of a cake is perfect for anyone who loves chocolate as it’s super rich and moist, made with chocolate from Tales chocolate. The chocolate bar, “Gamla Stan” is created to tell a story of Stockholm’s Old Town with a sculptural map on the bar itself, but also through the flavour and taste experience. This is their first chocolate bar, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next! They’re sold at selected Designtorget stores in Stockholm and they also have an online shop with worldwide shipping, in case you yourself would like a small piece of Stockholm!
I rarely buy 85% chocolate because I tend to think it’s too strong for me, but I was so wrong! This one is smooth and fruity, perfect to eat as is, and also wonderful for baking. It looks good, it tastes good, and it’s also organic, fair trade and additive free. I mean, what more could one wish for? As for the cake, I had one piece the day I made it, and one piece the day after and I must say it keeps getting better and better. I gave the leftovers to my mom, and she’s been eating it for a few days now. She says it gets even better, especially with a little sprinkle of salt.
