Chocolate and redcurrants are a truly delicious combination, a soft gluten free chocolate sponge topped with silky smooth chocolate buttercream and a smattering of redcurrants on the top is just the job. Don't over do the red currants, just a handful is enough to give you that fantastic tang they have.
