Easter Cake with Chocolate Glaze April 7, 2012

 

 

Ingredients

 

For the Cake:

175g/6ozĀ  butter

175g/6oz caster sugar

3 eggs, beaten

175g/6oz self-raising flour, sifted

pinch of salt

3 Tbsp jam

 

For the Chocolate Glaze:

180g chocolate, broken into pieces (I used white chocolate, but you can use milk or dark if you wish)

125g butter

1 Tbsp golden syrup

 

Method

 

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/ gas mark 5.

Grease and line two 20cm/8ins sponge tins.

Cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is pale and fluffy.

Add the egg a little at a time beating well after each addition.

Sift the flour and salt and carefully add to the mixture, folding it in using a metal spoon.

Divide the mixture between the two tins and level the tops.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 25-30minutes until well risen, golden brown and just beginning to shrink from the sides of the tin.

Leave in the tins for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.

When completely cooled sandwich together with your preferred jam.

 

To make the chocolate glaze:

Put all the ingredients into a saucepan over a very low heat. Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until all the ingredients have melted. Beat with a bulb whisk (not electric) until blended into a smooth mixture, this will take 1-2 minutes.

With the cake placed on a wire rack and a bowl placed underneath to catch the overflow, pour the glaze carefully over the cake, trying to cover any gaps.
