Serves 24
Total Time
55 Minutes
225g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra to grease
200g Waitrose & Partners light brown soft sugar
3 British Blacktail free range eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
70g dark chocolate, melted
150ml buttermilk
225g self-raising flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
50g cocoa powder
½ tsp fine salt
200g Cooks’ Ingredients Salted Caramel Icing
30g dark chocolate, melted
Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4; lightly grease a 33cm x 22cm cake tin and line with baking parchment. Using electric beaters, cream together the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract and melted chocolate. Stir in the buttermilk until combined.

Step 2

In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients; sift into the mixture and fold in until combined. Tip into the cake tin, level the top and bake for 22-25 minutes until risen and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside and leave to cool completely in the tin.

Step 3

For the topping, spread the icing evenly over the top, then drizzle with the melted chocolate. Allow to set for 5 minutes, then slice into squares to serve.
