Rich Chocolate Cake and Cadbury Dairy Milk

Prep time


Total time

1h 10min




  1. 1

    Grease and base line two 20 cm (8 in) sandwich tins. Preheat oven to 160 °C fan, 180 °C conventional, gas mark 4.

  2. 2

    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.

  3. 3

    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.

  4. 4

    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.

  5. 5

    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.
