It is a frigid snowy day in February, I have a freezer half full of fruit from last summer.
What to make to brighten up the chilly day?
Surfed one of my favourite web sites Land O Lakes and found a combo that has 2 of the best foods in the world, chocolate and raspberries.
What a combo!
Here is the pudding cake baked ;
Served with fresh raspberries and a dusting of icing sugar;
This a a gooey, moist, incredibly easy dessert.Huge amount of flavour.
