I spent much of the first eighteen years of my life regularly visiting Derbyshire and I've never heard of it.
Bakewell pudding (as distinct from the debased Bakewell Tart) was the only native dessert I can think of.
Howewever, the Chatsworth Farm shop sells some very nice chocolate cakes. They were also selling an amazing "beetroot and chocolate cake" last year.
They occasionally make the incredibly rich "Duke's Chocolate Cake" which actually has a Russian-American heritage.
However, Googling forthe recipe
, I stumbled upon a website "Derbyshire Desserts"
- linke to a book not yet published?
This also has a recipe for Earl Sterndale Chocolate Cake
