Sugar High Friday #27: Rich chocolate cake with Fair trade cocoa

SHF#16David Lebovitz is hosting this month’s SHF, the sweet event created by Jennifer, of Domestic Goddess . As a chocoholic he chose the theme Chocolate By Brand. The mission: Prepare a favorite chocolate dish and write about the brand of the used chocolate/cocoa.

cocoa brand-gepaI used a fair trade product from gepa. This organic farming cocoa is produced by the farm cooperative „El Ceibo“ in Bolivia. It is gepa’s objective to improve the living conditions of marginalized producers in the South by offering them a market chance in order to make it possible for them to take part in national and international marketing under fair conditions and to secure a decent living for them out of own efforts. Using this brand, I kill two birds with one stone: I get a tasty and delicious cocoa and I maintain the Fair Trade idea.

Nearly one year this recipe waits to be tested.
