2 tsp baking powder

  5. Bake at 350 for about 1 hour.

*This will not be a fluffy “cake” texture – it’s more dense & fudge like!

It also goes really well with a nice glass of red wine,
if you’re old enough to drink!Winking smile

The boyfriend & I had a nice date night with this pairing.

And no, we didn’t go through 2 bottles of wine –
he wanted to try this blueberry wine I had & I wanted my organic red wine!
