I had a lovely Mother's Day treat last night when I went out for a meal in Cambridge with all four of my sons... it's not often they are all free at the same time. Good food and lots of laughs... why it still amazes me the amount they can eat I do not know!
Today it was my turn to treat my Mum to lunch so I made a chocolate cake for dessert... funnily enough three of the boys were also available for lunch today as well!
The recipe from this month's Good Housekeeping unfortunately supplied dietary information... and without the chocolate truffles (they are truffles not giant Maltesers) it clocks up a whopping 856 calories per slice...
I tell you I could feel myself getting fatter before I even tasted it... but it was worth it. And I don't even like chocolate cake that much! But it was rich, dense and fudgy and worth every calorific mouthful. And I ate a truffle!
We did have a lovely long walk in the sunshine after lunch to burn some of it off!
Whether you are a Mum or have spent time with your own Mum, I hope you have had a lovely day too!
