NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Sunday Post: Afternoon... Sorted

 Last week I was scrolling through the pages of The Londoner on my lunch break - as you do - when I came across the Chocablock recipe. I'd never baked a chocolate loaf before. I didn't even own a baking tin. But I knew this had to go down and might just make our new house feel like a home... fresh baking smells and all'a that jazz. It's a simple throw everything in a bowl kind of recipe and my god does it taste good. So good in fact that I need to bake another one today as we finished devouring it to the last crumb on Friday. THERE IS NOW A CAKE VOID IN MY LIFE PEOPLE!

Anyway, I thought I'd pop this up as my Sunday Post this week in case any of you had a free afternoon. I highly recommend you check out Rosie's post on it - she's far funnier than I am - and give it a whirl.
