In response to all those of you who attended the Biggest and Best Show the Society has ever staged last Saturday (15 October 2005)(38 competitors, 764 entries, one of which needed three people to lift)and wanted the recipe of Eddy Ashmore's wonderful chocolate cake, here it is;
(Adapted from La Cucina Delle Regione D'llalia by Matthew Evans)
100g raisins or sultanas
2 tbsp white wine
300g honey
1 tbsp water
50g butter
400g plain flour
200g blanched almonds 70g pine nuts
300g candied peel, chopped 100g bitter chocolate, chopped 1 tsp ground fennel seed
3 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
pinch of pepper
Sprinkle the raisins with the wine and set aside. Heat the honey gently in a saucepan with the water and butter. Remove from the heat, add the flour and gently stir in the remaining ingredients. Beat to mix well. Butter a large flat pie dish and firmly press the mixture into it. Decorate the top with more candied peel if you like and bake gently in a warm oven (l50C) for about 40 or 50 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
