How do I make it ?
Select All
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 180°C (conventiol bake). Grease and line the base of a 20 cm cake tin with baking paper.
Step 2
Using a electric beater, cream the butter, sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Step 3
Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda into the creamed mixture and fold in together with the milk.
Step 4
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for 45–50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Leave in the tin for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.
Step 5
To make the Chocolate Gache: Melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over hot water or in the microwave on 20 second bursts. Gently stir to a smooth consistency. Do not overmix.* Allow to thicken slightly before using.
Step 6
Once the cake is cold, pour the chocolate gache over the top, lightly spreading with a knife and allowing the gache to run down the sides. Top with fresh raspberries and dust with icing sugar, if wished.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
*Do not overmix the gache or allow water to get into the mixture as it will become unusable.
