Chocolate Concrete Cake

Hello everyone, I hope your Tuesday has been well!! The weather is quite dull so here is a tasty chocolate treat to cheer you up. It was a school favourite for me and I always remember buying a slice along with my lunch. I love the crunchy bite and subtle chocolate flavour, this is kind of like a mix between a biscuit and a thin cake. It’s also a nice and quick recipe that’s perfect for many occasions.
