Well, for a taste test for Brit's birthday cake I decided to put it into a cake..It's good.
I have cheated a little in this cake but the cake is going to have to be assembled quickly so it needs a little cheating.
So, I baked 3 layers of my favourite chocolate sponge -
180g Plain Flour
275g Caster Sugar
60g Cocoa Powder (preferably dark)
1-1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1-1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
130ml Strong Coffee, Hot
75ml Vegetable Oil
1 tbs Vanilla Extract
Preheat the oven to 180 and grease and line 3 6inch rounds.
In KitchenAid Bowl, sift all dry ingredients.
Add all remaining ingredients and mix on medium for 2 minutes, scrape bowl and mix again for a few seconds.
Weigh the layers to ensure they are equal and pour into prepared tins.
Bake for 20 minutes and rotate the pans and bake until a skewer comes out clean - about 30 minutes.
Cool in there tins.
Now you just need to assemble your masterpiece!
