Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease and flour two 20cm round cake tins.
Sift cake flour and combine with baking powder and salt. Set mixture aside.
With and electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to the butter mixture.
Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into flour mixture then fold in chopped chocolate bars. Pour cake mixture into prepared tins.
Bake for 20 minutes. Let cakes cool in tins for 10 minutes then remove from tins.
Not sure if I did something wrong in the mixing, but the large volume of milk made my mixture so sloppy that it took an hour to cook! 250 ml of milk seems an awful lot. As a result, the mars bar bits ended up very brittle. Mars bar icing was a nice addition for the topping. - 24 Jul 2016
