  4. Add the flour and mix on speed 3 for 30 seconds. If anything is unblended, mix it in gently with the spatula until just blended. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  5. Bake 22-25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean.

Tip

It tastes like basil and chocolate.  This is not one of those recipes that masks one flavour with the other.
