Who says marmite has to be kept to savoury dishes? A hint of marmite gives a new taste dimension to this chocolate cake…
I made a very special cake as a belated birthday present to myself – read about my challenge!
I’ve been looking for a very special chocolate cake recipe for a while – one that actually tastes chocolatey. The recipes I have suggest putting a tablespoon of cocoa powder in a normal victoria sponge but this never ever tastes good to me! This recipe doesn’t use any raising agent surprisingly and comes from The Telegraph from many years ago.
A classic recipe that’s sure to impress anyone! It’s so easy to make it look stunning, fresh fruit really sets it off. I use buttercream to fill it with fresh cream on top with a little lemon juice and rind to cut through the sweetness of the filling.
Had to upload this wonderful and inspired take on cake design! Made by Chris Kemm (and kindly printed with his permission) this was a sponge cake baked in a normal tray using my basic cupake recipe
