DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F (gas mark 5), and grease and line two 8" cake pans.
  • Sift flour and salt into a mixing bowl.
  • Melt chocolate in a bowl placed over a saucepan of hot water.
  • In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar together until fluffy, then beat in the chocolate and mashed potato.
  • Gradually beat in the eggs, adding a little flour with each addition.
  • Fold in the rest of the flour and stir in the milk.
  • Divide mixture evenly between the cake pans and bake for 25-30 minutes or until top is firm but springy to the touch.
  • Remove from oven and after a few minutes, turn out on a cooling rack.
  • While the cake is cooling, melt the chocolate for the filling as before.
  • Stir in the other ingredients and mix well.
  • Use the filling to sandwich the sponge layers together and coat the top and sides of the cake.
