    MaryR46's Note:

    I recently came across a notebook of recipes from the 1950s which belonged to my grandmother. Her indulgent chocolate cake recipe included spices and dry fruit, ingredients which I feel are best suited to a winter cake, so I decided to adapt it to my taste and skip those altogether. This yummy cake is so chocolaty and creamy. I love chocolate and everything that has cocoa in it. Chocolate is uplifting and it's good to know that according to medical researchers, if eaten in moderation, dark chocolate - and cocoa in general - (maybe not milk chocolate, since it's full of fat), is a powerful antioxidant and therefore acts as an anti-ageing and also helps to lower cholesterol.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    cake

    Units: US | Metric

    For the cake

    For the chocolate custard

    For the frosting

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare the custard by whisking the egg with the sugar. Add the cocoa and corn starch, the milk and place over a low heat stirring with a wooden spoon until the custard thickens. Remove from the heat, stir in the butter and allow to cool.
    2. 2
      Now on to the cake: Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease a 20cm/8in cake tin with some butter and dust it with flour.
    3. 3
      Beat the eggs with sugar and butter until fluffy. Blend in the rest of the ingredients and stir until smooth. Gently pour the mixture on to the cake tin.
    4. 4
      Bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes, or until the top is firm to the touch and a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
    5. 5
      Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool completely.
    6. 6
      Transfer the cake to a serving plate. Cut the cake in half and spread the chocolate custard on the bottom half of the cake, then carefully top with the other half.
    7. 7
      Prepare the frosting by blending the butter with the cream cheese and the honey.
    8. 8
      Ice the cake all over with the cream cheese icing, using a palette knife. Dust the top with a small amount of cocoa.
