    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C/ gas mark 4 and grease a round cake tin (22cm).
    2. For the cake: Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Stir in the melted butter and milk and mix well.
    3. Pour into the greased cake tin and bake for 25 minutes.
    4. Remove and leave to cool on a wire rack.
    5. For the chocolate filling/icing: Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Stir in the butter and coffee and whisk quickly, until smooth.


    This recipe makes a lot of icing so what I do, is I carefully cut the cake in half (horizontally) and put the icing on the bottom half like I'm spreading some butter on a sandwich. I then put the top half back on and use the rest of the icing on top to decorate.
