Ingredients

  • 225g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra to grease
  • 200g Waitrose & Partners Light Brown Soft Sugar
  • 3 British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 70g dark chocolate, melted
  • 150ml buttermilk
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp fine salt

TOPPING

  • 200g Cooks’ Ingredients Salted Caramel Icing
  • 30g dark chocolate, melted

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4; lightly grease a 33cm x 22cm cake tin and line with baking parchment. Using electric beaters, cream together the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract and melted chocolate. Stir in the buttermilk until combined.

  2. In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients; sift into the mixture and fold in until combined. Tip into the cake tin, level the top and bake for 22-25 minutes until risen and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside and leave to cool completely in the tin.

  3. For the topping, spread the icing evenly over the top, then drizzle with the melted chocolate. Allow to set for 5 minutes, then slice into squares to serve.
