Liquorice-chocolate cheesecake

First thing to say about this cake is that it’s sin on a plate. There is nothing healthy about this cake. But as it’s so rich you only need a little. That balances it right?? 😀

Speed of that will depend on when lil ‘un decides to make an entrance! 😀

Here is the first one – kicking off with something easy and simple!
