I was rather disappointed in my last baking attempt.
There's always the danger with trying a new recipe (and with baking I do at least make a serious effort to follow the recipe) that it may not turn out as well as you'd hoped. But since the alternative is to make the same old staples again and again, I continue experimenting.
And this particular time, I was disappointed. The recipe (which I won't share) was for chocolate cake. It came out okay, but a bit dry.
Nevertheless, there is a surefire way to make disappointing cake into a moreish dessert - heat it up, and whack some other things on top of it. In this case, I used some standby cherries (from a jar) & raspberries (from the freezer), and made a hot chocolate sauce by melting dark chocolate with a little butter & golden syrup. Much better.
