Chocolate Truffle Cake

The layer cake lasts us for nearly a week now and I haven't been baking any more since. My palate started to get more attached to sweet stuff than the savoury now. With no new recipe to share this week, I decided to pick one of my old recipes for chilled cake.

Virtually every member of Mr T's family knows about cooking and baking. Lisa is one of them who has many beautiful recipes to share. This recipe is a revised version of Lisa's original recipe. The outcome is so good I would strongly recommend everyone to try it! With this recipe, I used flaxseed oil in replace of salted butter. I enjoy sweet food but certainly not looking forward to gain too much weight!
