This is a gorgeous cake, very very chocolatey! I've made it with lots of different fruit, blueberries, overripe pears, tinned broken mandarins (drained!) and a mixture of strawberries, raspberries and blackberries, and it comes out delicious every time. I've made it without the nuts too, and it's just as nice. It's yummy warmed in the microwave with custard or ice cream too!
