November 20th, 2009 · 7 Comments

In the olden days, that would be October… when our Celebrity Chef had a birthday… His hearts desire was that his friend Peter the Pastry Chef or James could come round and make chocolate cake with him.

Unfortunately they were both busy on the day and we settled down and made Chocolate fudge cake together… Well this past weekend we made up for lost time and spent the whole of Saturday chocolateering with his chef friend Peter.

You could be done, but our chefs decided to top the cake with canned peaches and you could probably top it with any canned fruit or keep it pure chocolate, whatever takes your fancy…

Pop it into a low heat oven (180 degrees Celsius or 350 Fahrenheit) for about 35 – 40 minutes. (If you stick a sharp knife into it should come out clean).

And you are done…

You can top this cake with A Chocolate Fudge Sauce, but we never got round to that in the heat of the day – we moved on to higher things… truffles… in the next post!!!

But here is the fudge sauce if you need to make it:

Let’s Meet The Players:

  • 60 g butter
  • 230 g sugar
  • 150 ml milk
  • 250 ml cream
  • 150 ml Golden Syrup
  • 200 g plain chocolate

Let’s Play the Game:
Heat all the ingredients, except the chocolate, in a heavy pot.
Boil until it is golden colored, for about 10 minutes – stirring all the time. Take it off the heat and add the chocolate. Stir the chocolate through and it will melt, hmmmm! Pour over your cake and now you are really done!!!

That’s it – Bon Appetito!!!
