Fresh Mint and Chocolate Cake by claremanson Fresh Mint and Chocolate Cake by claremanson
Freshly picked mint from my kitchen window and a very naughty rich chocolate sponge with a sticky chocolate ganache and mint sprig.

I have been waiting for months for my mint seeds to grow, now they are finally big enough to start using. I have never used fresh mint in baking before as I can never really find it in the shops or the ones I do see do not look very healthy as they have been hanging around for days so this was a bit of an experiment. It was lovely but next time I will add more mint and maybe a little more sweetness by adding a mint butter cream topping instead of the ganache. That is the beauty of testing something new out, getting to make it again a different way which is what keeps baking fun and exciting for me.

If you want to experiment with it yourself, here is my chocolate cake recipe, just add chopped fresh mint and a topping of your choosing to taste.
