V is for …….. Chocolate Vimto Cake

The challenge for Alphabakes this month has been a tough one – without using the usual V for Vanilla!  I was stumped for a while, but saw a bottle of Fizzy Vimto when I was in town last week picking up a few bits and pieces.  I thought, “Fantastic – I know just the recipe I can use that in!”.

So here it is – not an original recipe of mine, but a variant of a James Martin recipe from the BBC Website for Chocolate Cola Cake from the Housecall TV Programme.  I simply replaced the Cola in the recipe for Fizzy Vimto – and you can definitely taste the Vimto!  It isn’t too powerful a flavour and complements the chocolate perfectly – much better than the original cola version in my opinion.
