Welcome to #CookItBlogIt which is a fortnightly linky for any recipes you have – old or new. I’ll be adding all posts to our #CookItBlogIt Pinterest board at some point during the next fortnight as well so hopefully, you’ll not only get some new followers, you’ll also be able to go to the Pinterest board for inspiration when you’re stuck for meal ideas.
Oh, there’s also a badge up there if you want to use it but if not, no problem .
Last night Mr Frugal finished work at 8 and walked half a mile to get me a Chai Latte from Costa Coffee as a treat as he knew I was feeling poorly. He was gutted when he got there and they were closed bless him but it was a lovely thought so I’m making my version of a Chocolate Fudge cake as a treat for him when he comes in tonight.
Chocolate Fudge Cake
For the cake:
150g self raising flour
25g cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
2tbsp golden syrup
For the icing:
500g icing sugar
150g melted milk chocolate
- Cream the butter and the sugar together.
- Add the eggs, vanilla essence and golden syrup and mix together thoroughly.
- Fold in the flour and the cocoa.
- Separate the mixture into two round cake tins (silicone molds are great too) and bake at around 190 c for 15 ish minutes. The cakes cooked when you can poke it with a skewer or knife and it comes out clean.
- Leave them to cool fully.
- Next for the icing which is the easy bit – add the icing sugar, butter and melted chocolate to a mixing bowl and mix. Add milk until it gets to a smooth spreading consistency – you shouldn’t need too much.
- I like to sandwich the cakes together with a bit of warmed cherry jam and some of the chocolate fudge icing. The rest of the icing I use to smother the cake in chocolatey goodness!
