“Coffee and chocolate are the old, great pals,p. But here, a new friend is invited to their company, TAHINI ! Any other nut butter would go well replacing tahini here; of course with a narrow twist on the result... Have fun with new experiments, enjoy!”

  • Step 5/5

    When cool enough to handle, turn the cake out onto a wire rack until completely cold. It does not need anything to add, but if desired, feel free to dust with some icing sugar, cocoa powder or even instant coffee powder. Enjoy!
