RED WINE CHOCOLATE CAKE

Lost in the time, my old recipe from Dubrovnik, saw the light of the sun after a long time... It's believed that the origin of this recipe is from between the 14th and the 15th centuries.
The old history of Dubrovnik (from the 7th century), long cooking tradition, good and healthy food, the sun, the sea and the best wines... this, simply, cannot turn bad...

  1. Tämä kuulosta herkulta.
    Rakastan kirsikoita, niin hillona, mehuna, tuoreina, kuin kuivattuinakin. Coctail kirsikoista en pidä erityisemmin leivonnassa.
