Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Made this yesterday. It's good,but a bit of a faff; I'm not sure it's good enough to justify the amount of folding you have to do. Reading the description, however, I may have overcooked it slightly, as it's meant to be fudgy in the centre. Note: my copy of the recipe calls for espresso itself, not beans -- I used espresso from our pod machine, but instant espresso would probably do as well. I probably won't make it again, to be honest. It's not particularly difficult, but it is a bit of faff for a chocolate cake which doesn't quite blow me away.
