No Video
  • Prep time 40 minutes
  • Total time 70 minutes


  • 50 g Bournville Cocoa
  • 90 ml of boiling water
  • 25 g self raising flour
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 100 g baking spread
  • 250 g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g Cadbury Dairy Milk Small Chunks
  • Ingredients for the chocolate ganache and decoration
  • 275 ml double cream
  • 250 g Bournville Dark Chocolate
  • 15 g Cadbury Dairy Milk Small Chunks


  • Grease and base line two 20 cm (8 in) sandwich tins. Preheat oven to 160 °C fan, 180 °C conventional, gas mark 4.
  • For the cake: Put the cocoa powder and boiling water into a smallish bowl and mix to a smooth paste. Put the remaining cake ingredients, except for the CDM Small Chunks into a large mixing bowl with the cocoa paste. Using an electric whisk, beat until well combined.
  • Stir in the CDM Small Chunks and divide the mixture between the prepared cake tins. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until well risen and shrinking away from the sides of the tin. Allow to cool.
  • For the ganache: Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Heat the cream in a saucepan until just boiling. Pour the cream over the melted chocolate. Stir until smooth and glossy. Set aside for 1-2 hours or until thick enough to spread easily over the cake.
  • To assemble the cake, remove from the tins and sandwich the two cakes together with a little of the ganache. Place on a serving plate and ice the cake all over with the remaining ganache. Scatter generously with the CDM Small Chunks.
