When you miss your home country, homemade food can bring it closer!
There is no moldovan who hasn’t heard of this delicious chocolate bar: Chisinau de seara! The mix of plums and chocolate is such a perfect combination that you wouldn’t be able to stop eating these chocolates. Every time my mother sends me a parcel, she puts some of these chocolates… My desire for this chocolate inspired me to make this cake during nostalgic periods like Christmas….e. A sugar-free cake would be more welcome than the traditional chocolates, don’t you think?

1/3 cup honey(or more, depending on how sweet you want it to be)
