Oh, the chocolate ripple cake!

Yum, yum, yum yum. I've been a wee bit obsessed with sweet things lately -ever since seeing this dietician (shes amazing, I've lost 7 kg so far) and have had to cut down on treats, all I can think about is what I'm going to bake next.

So on Monday night, when Andrew was off doing work stuff, I made the amazing Chocolate ripple cake.

So here's Arnott's take on it (fair enough, they make the Chocolate Ripple biscuits!), though I made the following changes: 1) 300 ml cream wasn't enough, so I whipped up a bit more (mabye 3 tablespoons?) to cover the top nicely... and 2) I covered the thing in flaked almonds.

The verdict - well the entire cake is now one lonely portion in the fridge and I don't expect that will last too long. I definitely think that the almond make an interesting flavour addition. My favourite critic Andrew also tells me that the almond made for an interesting texture on the tongue.

Upcoming guest editor Shirley also suggests a bit of chocolate on top if you're making this for Christmas.
