Chocolate Cake

Beat the butter with the sugar until pale and light in texture. Beat the eggs. Grate the chocolate and mix with the flour, cocoa and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture a little at a time, alternating with additions of beaten egg. Mix in each addition well. Finally, add the vanilla essence and enough milk to make a soft batter. Turn into a greased and floured 23cm (9in) tin, the bottom lined with a butter wrapper cut to fit. Bake until set, 50 minutes approx., in a moderate oven, 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Cool the cake and split in two.

Autumn at Ballymaloe

An Indian summer of dry, bright and unseasonal mild weather has helped with garden jobs and extending the shorts-wearing season! After a disappointing summer the autumn months are slowly preparing us for the winter ahead. 
In the herbaceous borders we’ve begun to tidy and redesign before the frost knocks back the foliage and it gets harder to tell what’s what.  It’s also a great time to clear ahead of bulb planting which will go in in early November.  Watch out for hibernating hedgehogs!
