Tablea is what we call our locally produced, pure cacao tablet. Recently, a friend gave me a pack of tablea that she claimed was the renowned one in her province…
And while I could use them to make sikwate – a hot chocolate beverage made with locally produced tablea, I decided I wanted to make something else… a chocolate cake using tablea!
The basis for my cake is from the local Yummy magazine – http://www.yummy.ph/recipe/chocolate-tablea-cake-a185-20120319. I used about 100 grams of tablea.
So how does the tablea chocolate cake compare with the regular chocolate cake? Well, there is a different dimension to the the tablea choco cake and a slight tang but it was delicious in its own special way!
