- Prep time: 15 min
- Cook time: 2 hours
- Ready in: 2 hours 15 min
- Yields: 8
- 200 g of Chocolate - I use Belgium but any good quality chocolate will be fine
- 200 g Light Muscavado Sugar
- 200 g Caster Sugar
- 200 g of Butter or Margarine
- 85 g of Self Raising Flour
- 85 g of Plain Flour
- 3 eggs
- 5 tbsp Milk
- Â¼ tsp Bicarb. Of Soda
- 1. Pre-heat your oven to Gas Mark 3 / 140 C (fan assisted) / 160 C (conventional)
- 2. Grease (can use butter) and line two cake tins
- 3. Break the chocolate into small pieces and melt along with the butter. There are many ways you can do this, just do not expose the chocolate or butter to a naked flame, and do not overheat.
- 4. Add and mix the two flours, sugars and bicarbonate of soda into a large mixing bowl using your hands to thoroughly remove all lumps.
- 5. Add the eggs and milk and stir until the mixture is even throughout.
- 6. Add the melted chocolate and butter to the mixture and stir.
- 7. Divide the mixture between the two tins and bake for about two hours. To check that the cakes are completely cooked, push a knife into the centre of the cakes and if they come out clean, then the cakes are done.
- 8. Once cooked, leave to cool. Now cut off the top of both cakes where they have risen. Make sure that they are both as level as they can be. This will help with the topping.
