Chocolate fudge cake!
This is one of the most popular cakes I bake! Its a rich, moist dark chocolate cake and it is delicious! I use it a lot.
It's great for celebration and wedding cakes and it is so easy to adapt the flavours and fillings. I usually use white chocolate buttercream as a filling but it can easily be changed to mint chocolate or chocolate orange.
So here it is:
(for a 10" tin)
350 g (12oz) butter, chopped, plus extra to grease
350 g (12oz) plain chocolate, chopped
275 ml (9fl oz) milk
375 g (13oz) plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
60 g (2½oz) cocoa powder
750 g (1lb 11oz) caster sugar
6 medium eggs
250 ml (8fl oz) sour cream
Preheat oven to 160°C (140°C fan) mark 3. Grease
