Best Ever Chocolate Cake
This lovely recipe was given to me by my cousin, Hilary, who is a brilliant cook. I used it for a wedding cake and it was just perfect. Very indulgent with lots of eggs and tons of flavour!
Ingredients: 6oz butter, 9oz dark chocolate, 5oz SR flour, 9oz caster sugar, 9 eggs (separated)
Icing: 12oz dark chocolate, 12 fl oz double cream, 3 tbsp brandy
Method: Cream the butter and sugar, gradually add egg yolks. Fold in the flour and melted chocolate. Whisk egg whites till stiff and fold into mix. Bake in a lined 10" tin at 160c till firm to touch. Melt all the filling ingredients together an leave to cool. Cut cooled cake into 3 layers and sandwich with filling and coat the outside of the cake. Enjoy!
