A delicious chocolate cake that can be served as the main piece, or just for Sunday tea




Ingredients


60g honey

4 large eggs

200g self-raising flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

30g cocoa

175g soft dark brown sugar

60g dark chocolate (70% cocoa), melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon water

250g butter (room temperature)


Frosting


400g dark chocolate

300ml crème fraîche (room temperature)


Method


1. Preheat the oven to 190°C / 170°C Fan / Gas Mark 5. Line two round 20cm baking tins with baking paper.


2. To make the sponge put all the ingredients in a mixer, making sure to sift the flour, baking powder, and cocoa together.


3. Mix everything together. Divide evenly into prepared tins and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes.


4. Once baked, take the cake tins out and leave them to sit for around 10 minutes. Then take them out of the tins and place them on a wire rack to cool completely.


5. Melt the chocolate, add the crème fraîche and mix well. Place one sponge on a serving tray, spread frosting across the top then place another sponge on top. Coat the whole cake and leave the frosting to set for a few minutes. If you would like to decorate the cake with chocolate bars, then it is best to put them on as soon as the frosting is applied.



ENJOY!
