OVER 18s ONLY!
This cake is far too rich and sumptious to be eaten by anyone who has yet to vote. Children out the door please!
This may sound cruel, but I promise you'll understand when you make this... the last place you want to see it is smeared around the face of the under tens, who would be just as happy with a fairy cake!!!
To die for, just one more slice more, I hope no one saw me scraping the silicone cake mould with my teeth(those things are flexible for a reason!!), I want to only eat this forever more!
"Luxury Chocolate" Chocolate cake!
Adapted from How to be a Domestic Goddess
I use Black Magic 85% for this one....
225g Soft unsalted butter
375g dark muscavodo sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
150gms darkest chocolate
200gms plain flour (with tsp bicarb. of soda)
50gms ground almond
250mls boiling water
Blitz the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a processor until smooth, then by hand fold in your chocolate which you have melted. Gently add the flour mix and the boiling water and blitz again. It will be very liquidy but don't worry. Pour into mould or tin and bake for about 40 minutes at 190c - or until the skewer comes out with what looks like chocolate squidge!
Allow it go very cold before icing with a simple ganache of melted chocolate mixed with some cream and a tsp of orange flower water if you have it!
