Chocolate Sprinkle Cake Recipe featuring Cake Angels*

My second recipe this week for National Chocolate Week and this time it's a chocolate sprinkle cake! I've posted a few basic sponge recipes like my school sponge cake and my lemon drizzle but not too many chocolate cake ones so I thought I'd give this one a go. It's a basic chocolate sponge topped with melted milk chocolate and covered in sprinkles from Cake Angels. Cake Angels were kind enough to send me a selection of sprinkles to feature in some baking posts, and I knew the chocolate ones would be perfect for this post!
Cake Angels are experts in cake decorating and it's their mission to help people create fabulous bakes and creations with their products. They sell such a wide range including marshmallows, royal icing, halloween and christmas themed products and of course sprinkles and if you love to bake they really are worth checking out. Also I just wanted to mention I've included some chocolate in this recipe from Guittard who also kindly sent me some products to feature. If you haven't already seen I posted a recipe a few days ago for chocolate covered brownies so make sure you give that a read!
250g butter
200g golden caster sugar
50g soft dark brown sugar
4 eggs
250g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 tbsp cocoa powder
50g dark chocolate, grated
80ml warm milk
150g milk chocolate
any toppings you like - sprinkles, chocolate chips etc

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees and grease a large square baking tin
2. Beat the butter with an electric whisk in a bowl until soft, then add in both sugars. Whisk again until light and creamy
3. Add in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Then add in the flour, baking powder and cocoa, fold in until everything is combined
4. Add in the grated chocolate and vanilla extract, and around 80ml of warm milk. Mix well until you have a smooth mixture with dropping consistency
5. Pour into your tin and bake in the oven for around 50 minutes, if you insert a skewer, it should come out clean. Then leave to cool on a wire rack
6. For the topping I melted 150g of chocolate, I used Guittard Semisweet Chocolate Chips which taste lovely and then I poured over the cooled cake.
7. Lastly I then added sprinkles, I used the Chocoholic Sprinkles from Cake Angels and then chilled in the fridge until it had just set, before cutting into squares
I'm seriously so pleased with how this went. I just love chocolate cake and with melted chocolate and sprinkles on top, it's just amazing. I will definitely be making this again and really recommend you give it a go if you love baking, or if you know someone who has a birthday coming up and you want to make something a bit different! Thanks so much to Cake Angels and Guittard for providing me with some products to try some new recipes this week, it's been so much fun! Look out for a final recipe featuring Cake Angels in a few days time!

I also just wanted to mention that Guittard are the primary sponsor for The Chocolate Show in London this weekend, so if you have any free time or if you're in the area, definitely pay them a visit!
