Ready In:




  • Preheat your oven to 180c / 350F and prepare 2 x 18cm (7") cake tins.
  • Beat together the sugar and butter until evenly creamed. Slowly add pre-beaten eggs and a little of the flour while still beating.
  • Sift in the cocoa powder and remaining flour, folding until all ingrediants are combined. Pour mix into the prepared cake tins and bake for approx 30 minutes until risen and firm to the touch.
  • Break up the milk chocolate into a microwaveble bown and heat until it is melted (this depends on your microwave, you can alternately melt the chocolate on the stove).Whip the cream until it is stiff and peaks but can still be stirred easily. Mix the melted chocolate into the cream and whip to your prefered thickness.
  • Removed the sponges from the oven once well risen and firm to the touch. You should be able to insert a slim knife and remove it clean. Allow tins to cool for 5 minutes and them leave sponges to cool fully on a wire rack.
  • Spread the chocolate cream on one of the sponges and sandwich with the other, thinly spread the remaining cream on top and decorate as you please. Enjoy!

Hi, I am new to this site. I live in scotland and I am a college student living with my parents. I have always loved food, maybe a little too much according to my waistline, and I have recently developed a great love of cooking home meals for myself and my family. Other than stuffing my face or creating things to stuff into my face I enjoy reading, dancing, music, art, photography and spending time with my boyfriend.. he also cooks, though is much more in shape than me! I am a bit of a gothypunky person, I like to look odd and I love Halloween and so have many recipes for spooky snacks to serve at your All Hallows party! I am also a vegetarian so there is no meat involved in any of my recipes though they are FAR from rabbit food. I love Quorn. So should you!
