Triple Chocolate Cake

I have had my recipe for a Triple Chocolate Cake for ages and for some reason I have not yet put it up on the blog, so from the archives here is how I made it:

Ingredients

  • 200g of Sugar
  • 300g of Butter
  • 150g of Flour
  • 75g of Cocoa
  • 2tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 4 Eggs
  • 75g of Icing Sugar
  • 150g of Milk Chocolate

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (fan)
  2. Cream the sugar and 200g of butter together until smooth
  3. Then sieve in the flour, 50g of cocoa, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and mix until crumbly
  4. Finally, add the eggs and beat until the mixture is smooth and silky
  5. Then pour into a greased cake tin and bake for 25-30 minutes until cooked (you can tell by prodding the top of the cake, when ready it will bounce back)
  6. Get out of the oven and allow to cool
  7. Whilst cooling prepare the frosting for the middle
  8. To do this sieve the icing sugar and remaining cocoa into a bowl and add the rest of the butter
  9. Simply cream together until smooth
  10. Then carefully cut your cake in half evenly through the middle and slather the frosting onto the bottom half before popping the top half back on
  11. Set aside and melt the chocolate (either in the microwave or over a pan of boiling water in a glass bowl)
  12. Once the chocolate is melted pour is over the top of your cake for the third layer of chocolate
  13. Allow to cool and set before serving

Note: This cake was made in a 13″ tin

Now what I do remember is that this Triple Chocolate Cake tasted amazing, it was really rich and a little sickly so you had to have a smaller piece. The upside it lasts longer!

I have not been doing much baking so that is why I am sharing an old recipe and I have one or two more up my sleeve but I guess I better get baking before I run out of ideas!

  2. Looks yummy! Looking forward to giving this a go!

    1. Let me know if you do, I would love to hear how it comes out!

  3. Oooo! Look at the lovely shine you got on your chocolate topping! I can understand why you would have to have a smaller piece of this at a time (but perhaps warm and with ice cream…). 🙂

    1. Oh my gosh, now I have to make it again so I can eat it warm with ice cream!
