This is a beautifully moist, rich fudge cake.



100g soft margarine

100g soft light brown sugar

2 eggs100g self raising flour

1tsp baking powder

2Tbsp cocoa powder


Filling and Icing

50g butter

75g milk or plain chocolate, broken into pieces. Plus 1 square

2Tbsp milk

225g icing sugar

1Tbsp cocoa powder

1Tbsp hot water

3  fudge bars



Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4.

Grease and line 2 18cm sandwich tins.

Place margarine, sugar and eggs into a bowl with the flour, baking powder and cocoa.

Add 2Tbsp of hot water and beat well together with an electric mixer for 2-3 minutes.

Divide the mixture evenly between the sandwich tins and bake for 25-30 minutes until risen and springy to the touch.

Leave to cool for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Melt the butter and chocolate with with the milk in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.

Sieve the icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl and using a wooden spoon, beat in the chocolate mixture along with 1Tbsp hot water.

The mixture should be thick enough to spread onto the cake. (If not, leave to cool a little).

Sandwich the sponges together using a quarter of the icing.

Use the remaining icing to cover the top and sides of the cake.

Decorate with the fudge bars around the edge

Grate the 1 piece of chocolate and sprinkle in the centre of the cake.



Dip a palette knife in hot water to make the icing easier to spread.
