16. Chocolate Pistachio Cake

I love cooking and predominately baking. If cakes and biscuits weren't so horrendously calorific, I'd make them all the time! However, I will freely admit that I'm an obese person stuck inside a smaller person's body and if I had absolutely no self control, I'd not only be the size of a house but probably a small village!

Easter Sunday was an exception though and I wanted to show you the Chocolate Pistachio Cake which I made for desert. The recipe was from a Waitrose magazine which even tells you how many calories you're devouring - as if you'd even dare look!

The cake consisted of layers of double chocolate loaf with a light white chocolate and pistachio mousse sandwiched between and then the whole thing was covered with a smooth chocolate ganache and topped with chopped pistachio nuts.

Are any of you baking queens? What are your favourite goodies to whip up?

I'm off to the gym now because I've eaten one Easter egg and a little Lindt bunny already today. I can feel my thighs moaning that I'm eating crap! Oops.
