    This was suggested to me on a forum as a good recipe for a toddlers birthday cake not too loaded in sugar. I tried it out and was impressed!! It has the consistency and colour of a caramel mud cake, taste was given a big tick by hubby, friend and toddler too! Personally I found it a little on the bland side (compared to a caramel mud cake) but haven't tried icing it yet, and generally prefer cakes which aren't too sweet anyway. I will definitely make this one again and will use his recipe for my toddlers birthday cake too as it ticks all the boxes, cuts  nicely and tastes good too.
