Cadbury Chocolate Cake Recipe

It's been a little while since I last posted a baking recipe, in fact the most recent was my simple sponge cake with caramel icing, so today I wanted to share a Cadbury chocolate cake which I made last week! You can't really ever beat a classic chocolate cake can you? I didn't have all of the exact ingredients which I usually use for my Easter chocolate cake so I just went with what was in the cupboards to try and make something similar and it turned out so well. Soft, moist sponge with beautiful melted Cadbury sandwiched in the middle and on top!
Simple Chocolate Cake Recipe With Cadbury
225g butter
225g caster sugar
4 eggs
200g self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
30g cocoa powder
2 tbsp milk
200g Cadbury chocolate or whatever you prefer 

1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees and grease and line 2 cake tins
2. In a bowl cream together the butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy
3. Add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one
4. Sift in the self raising flour and baking powder, mix in and then sift in the cocoa powder
5. Usually after adding the cocoa powder, the mixture can get a bit difficult to mix so this is where you can add in 2 tbsp of milk to loosen it up
6. Pour the mixture into your two cake tins and bake in the oven for around 25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean
7. Leave the cakes to cool on a wire rack for around 20 minutes then you can prepare the filling
8. To melt the chocolate, just add to a glass bowl and put on top of a pan of simmering water, stirring until smooth
9. Once the chocolate has melted, pour half of it onto one of the cakes, spread evenly and then put the second cake on top. Add the remaining melted chocolate to the top, you can also add any decoration you fancy too

Whilst this might not be the best looking cake ever (I certainly didn't go to town on decoration) it tasted delicious and that's the most important thing. The sponge really did come out so soft and there is nothing better than smooth melted chocolate. Let me know if you give this recipe a go, it's a great one to use for when you just need a slice of cake but can't be bothered to make anything fancy!
