    Serves: 8

    For the chocolate sponge
    • 340g unsalted butter, softened
    • 340g caster sugar
    • 6 eggs
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 140ml milk
    • 225g self raising flour
    • 85g cocoa powder
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 pinch salt

    For the chocolate icing
    • 200g plain chocolate
    • 200g double cream
    • 85g milk chocolate, grated


    For the chocolate sponge:

    1) Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease two 15cm round cake tins.

    2) In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then add the vanilla extract and the milk and mix.

    3) In a separate bowl, sift in the flour and add the cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Mix well.

    4) Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until well blended. Divide the chocolate sponge mixture evenly between the two prepared cake tins.

    5) Bake the two sponges in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes until the cake is firm and a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

    6) Allow to cool completely before turning out onto a cooling rack.

    For the chocolate icing:

    7) In a saucepan over a low heat, combine the 200g plain chocolate and the cream and whisk until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is well blended. Remove from the heat and whisk until the mixture is smooth and glossy. Leave to cool for 2 hours until the icing is thick enough to spread.

    8) To assemble, place one of the sponges onto a serving plate. Spoon 1/3 of the chocolate icing over the top of this first sponge layer. Carefully sandwich the second layer on top. With the remainder of the chocolate icing, spread over the top of the cake.

    9) Decorate with chocolate shavings and eat the same day.
