Good Food Friday : Moist Cocoa Cake

I’ve been experimenting a lot lately – which has left little time for blogging. I thought I’d share with you my Moist Cocoa Cake (aka traditional chocolate cake) more so because many people have been banging my inbox down asking for it and you know I’m all about giving people what they want! It scores big on the win-o-meter in this house plus, it’s sugar (fructose) and gluten free and totally delicious!
