I made this amazing chocolate and apricot fudge cake as a school fundraiser, and we had enough left over to take a few pieces on a beach walk today (it turned out to be a handy bribe and distraction when someone small cut their foot on a sharp rock so for that alone it was worth it.)
The recipe came from the local newspaper and Kalamata Deli, but I have discovered it here since- so you could make it too, if you feel so inclined. I halved the recipe and it still made a huge amount. We dissect the newspaper at journalism school each morning, and finding this recipe was a bright spot in amongst a lot of less-chocolately news.
Also this week, we were sent a copy of this beautiful little book: Violet Mackerel's Brilliant Plot, by the author herself, Anna Branford. K and I both read it and loved it. I will now be on the lookout for other books in the Violet series. She reminds me a little of the small girl who lives at our place, so thank you Anna for thinking of us.
Hope you've had a great weekend and are feeling fortified for the new week ahead.
