For This Year’s Festivities: Spiced Dark Chocolate Cointreau Cake

Stockings of varying sizes, mugs of eggnog, mistletoe, and bright red poinsettias—it can only mean that the holidays are approaching. More so, the laying of a traditional British fruitcake on the dining table brings about an air of warm, Yuletide nostalgia. The season of giving has come.

We thought of adding a Sunday Folks twist to the traditional British fruitcake. Instead of using a spiced butter cake, we opted to use an intensely chocolatey cake base made with 55.5% dark chocolate couverture and festive spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. Replacing the brandy is a boozy splash of Cointreau, a triple sec with orange notes, which go hand-in-hand with the rich cocoa flavor. Finally, this gorgeous handcrafted cake is topped with sweet dark cherries, juicy apricots, U.S. pecans, and dark chocolate droplets.

When your holidays are filled with too many events and too much excitement, a bite of this indulgent cake paired with your favourite cup of tea is just what you need to lure you into a calming, mindful state. Have it for personal consumption, for festive gatherings, or gift this delectable handcrafted treat to your friends, loved ones, and even your work colleagues.
