Caroline's Favourite Recipes

Welcome to my recipe page! This is the place where I will share some of my favourite recipes and cooking tips. I've always enjoyed cooking and baking and this subject was one of the few exams I successfully gained at school. I will be forever grateful to my domestic science teacher, Miss Foulks, who drummed the basics into me and gave me a love of all things food related. I am also grateful to my lovely Mum, who was a brilliant cake-maker and cook and ensured that in our childhood, my sisters and I ate delicious meals with fresh garden produce from my Dad's vegetable patch.

Best Ever Chocolate Fudge 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. 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!
