Lyle's® Chocolaty Fudge Cake

  • For the cake
  • 75g cocoa
  • 9 tbsp boiling water
  • 150g unsalted butter, softened
  • 110g Lyle’s Golden Syrup®
  • 315g Tate & Lyle® Golden Caster Sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 75ml milk
  • 250g plain flour, sifted
  • 1 1/2 rounded tsps baking powder
  • For the filling, icing and decoration
  • 150g dark chocolate 70% cocoa solids, broken into pieces
  • 150ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp Lyle’s Golden Syrup®
  • 8 chocolates

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°Fan/Gas 4.

In a large bowl mix the cocoa and water together with a wooden spoon until smooth, then add the butter, Lyle’s Golden Syrup®, Tate & Lyle® Golden Caster Sugar, eggs and milk. Mix again, then sift over the flour and baking powder to make a thick batter.

Spoon the mixture into the cake tins and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 30 minutes or until risen and a fine skewer comes out clean when inserted in the centre of the cakes.

Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and discard the parchment.

For the filling and icing, combine the chocolate, cream and golden syrup in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water until melted, for about 5 minutes. Stir constantly, then remove from the heat and leave to cool and thicken to a spreading consistency.

Sandwich the cakes together with about half of the chocolate cream, arrange on a plate, then use a palette knife to spread the rest decoratively over the top. Decorate with the chocolates and serve.
