This impressive cake would be the perfect centrepiece for any occasion!

Ingredients Quantity
Butter, softened 225g
WHITWORTHS DEMERARA SUGAR 225g
Large eggs 4
Self-raising flour 225g
Milk 2 tblsp
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
Cocoa powder 2 tblsp
Double cream 150ml
Milk or dark chocolate 100g
White chocolate, melted 75g

PREPARATION METHOD

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C / Gas Mark 4.

Grease a 20cm cake tin and line the bottom with a circle of greaseproof paper.

Beat the butter and WHITWORTHS DEMERARA SUGAR together, then add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Fold through the flour, milk and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.

Divide the mixture between 2 bowls. Stir the cocoa powder into one of the bowls. Take 2 spoons and use them to dollop the chocolate and vanilla cake mixes into the tin alternately, until all the mixture has been used up.

Take a skewer and use it to swirl the mixture a few times to create a marbled effect.

Bake for 50-60 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

If the cake isn’t cooked after 1 hour, cover loosely with a piece of foil and return to the oven for 10 minutes, or until cooked through.

Turn out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool.

To make the ganache topping, heat the cream in a pan and bring up to the boil, take off the heat. Place the chocolate in a large bowl, pour over the cream and stir to melt.

Allow to cool slightly, the mixture will thicken.

Transfer the cooled cake to a serving plate and pour the ganache over the top of the cake.

Drizzle with the melted white chocolate to decorate.

TOP TIPS

This is a very rich ‘chocolatey’ cake, so you could add the zest of an orange and replace the milk with orange juice for a chocolate orange treat!
