Did you know it's National Tea Month (as well as National Soup Month?) Who decides these things anyway? But it fits - January has been cold and rainy for us, and we have been enjoying our tea. We'd enjoy it even more when folded into a velvety chocolate cake like this one. Soaking fruit in tea brings out the flavor and, in this case, imparts a floral and herbal flavor.

Prunes and chocolate are both so rich they seem like an unnatural pairing - but they actually go very well together. Just have a glass of milk handy to counteract the sweetness, like with our Prune and Chocolate Chunk Cookies.

If you want to try that cake, click the link - the whole recipe is below the photo.
