Posted by ChellescakesThis is a good alternative to just plain chocolate.
- 250g Butter 100g toblerone 100g dark chocolate 1/4 cup water 1/4 cup booze of choice ( I use baileys or similar ) 3/4 cup buttermilk 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 1/2 cups caster sugar 1 TBSP honey. 1/3 cup cocoa 3/4 cup SR flour 1 cup plain flour 2 large or 3 small eggs 1 tsp vanilla extract
combine the first set of ingredients in a heavy based saucepan and heat gently until sugar and butter and chocolate are combined , set aside for a half hour to cool . Whisk in sifted dry ingredients , eggs and essence. Cook in a tin lined with baking paper , at 160 degrees celcius for the first half hour , reduce heat to 150 and cook for a further hour or hour and a half , until a skewer comes out clean. This cake keeps very well and actually improves with age.
