This Coco Cola Cake recipe is a staple for Dr Peggy Brunache. Although it is incredibly easy to make, this American southern dessert is not for the faint of heart! Only those with a sweet tooth and chocoholic tendencies can appreciate this American treat! It’s a rich, moist traybake that sits somewhere between a brownie and a sponge. It’s become a chocolate staple at the Southern Fried Food Festival, and the recipe comes with a warning: be prepared to make this again and again for your family and friends.

In 2015 the Pollock family at Ardross Farm Shop made the decision to bring sheep back onto the farm to sell alongside its award winning produce from the local area including the Gartmorn Farm Poultry and Puddledub Pork. They introduced a breed of sheep called Easy-Care which fitted in with the farm and their farming philosophies perfectly.

These sheep lamb themselves outside leading to a more natural and less stressful lambing, and are also wool shedding which means no shearing, again reducing stress on animal and farmer. The sheep are outside all year round on a purely grass-fed diet, and Ardross Farm cuts silage to feed the sheep in the winter when grass is in short supply.

All these factors ensures that the lamb they end up with is a delicious eating experience, and chef Iain’s youngest son has declared his dad’s Simple spiced lamb flatbreads as his favourite tea. An accolade indeed.
