Christmas Calendar 2016 - Christmas chocolate cake

A chocolate cake was also be turned into a Christmas version. I have used a recipe from the magazine "Isabellas" (issue 7/2015), and the only modification is, that I have not coated the chocolate cake in layer of dark chocolate.

The taste is very rich with it´s Christmas spices and use of dried fruits and nuts.
