Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes made with Akesson’s Chocolate

Chocolate Divine In the post where I wrote how Traveling teaches us to be present, I mentioned about going to London’s Portobello Market. There was something of too much of a coincidence about that trip, that a big part of my soul is telling me that it was divinely planned. I met the amazingly talented Charlotte Reed, whose work, illustrations, and positive sayings I absolutely love and then I stumbled upon this chocolate store that just pulled me in. But not just any chocolate store though. It’s Akesson’s Chocolate.  Today I’m going to share a very special Chocolate Bundt Cake recipe using Akesson’s Chocolate. Ya’ll know how much I love chocolate. I like it dark, intense; and real. Next to coffee, chocolate is my must have every day treat. I went into the store and looked around.

The words that I wanted to hear when I was going through such a dark period was to know that there would be a light or lesson in going through this difficult period. The glimmer of light and lessons I learned along the way …

Traveling Teaches Us to Be Present

I did something that was very unlike me just this past Thursday. Whenever I’m about to make a decision or go do something that’s quite big, I tend to mull over the possibilities over for days on end. Weighing up the pros & cons and literally analyzing whether my heart and head is in it or not. Many of you know that I’m currently living in Edinburgh and finished my final exams just this 8 May. Ever since that day, I have been spending my days working on this blog, baking, writing photographing… I enjoy it so much that the routine of it has become second nature. But for some reason, there was a part of me that felt stagnant; I felt  I was craving for some adventure, some unpredictability, something new to learn…. So, I booked a flight to go to London for 2 days. No questions asked. The spontaneity of it really surprised me. I literally booked it the night before I left the next morning, packed a small suitcase and went. I …
