P. S. Hey, everybody! I know I have been absent for a while as I had to sort out some personal things, but I am back to give you some nice ideas for your sweet tooth. This cake has quite low level of sugar, which can be reduced even more if you like so this cake is good also for those who are following some diets.. The berry sauce gives nice sweet finish to the smooth creamy cake.. To be honest this was our Christmas Cake and it was perfect end to a very rich meal..

Enjoy, k.
