I owned a coffee shop for a couple of years. Most of my regular customers and I became very good friends.
The one couple would visit the centre twice a week and the husband, an old Afrikaans professor would wait for his wife at the coffee shop whilst I had to keep him company. His wife gave this recipe to me and suggested I bake the cake for the coffee shop.
The recipe suggested that the cake should be dusted with icing sugar only but it never used to sell when I tried to present it like that so I started decorating it with chocolate ganache and fresh berries and my customers loved it. It is an expensive cake to bake, but is worthwhile for special occasions.

I am wishing you all a wonderful and blessed Easter.
