Hey everyone,

Today I'm sharing with you a recipe perfect for a Christmas Party - you can't go wrong with a Super Duper Chocolate Cake. Enjoy! xxx

Ingredients (Serves 10 -12) :

21cm Round Cake tins x3

200ml of Full Fat Milk
100g of Dark Chocolate
300g of Plain Flour
75g of Cocoa Powder
3 tsp. of Baking Powder
1 and 1/2 tsp. of Bicarbonate Soda
375g of Caster Sugar
200ml of Vegetable Oil
3 Large Eggs
200g of Greek Yoghurt
2 tsp. of Vanilla Extract

200g of White Chocolate
250g of Salted Butter
600g of Icing Sugar

Chocolate Shavings

Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 Fan/Gas Mark 4. Line all 3 cake tins with greaseproof paper.

Put the milk in a pan and bring to simmering point. Take off, the heat, add the dark chocolate and leave to melt. Mix until well combined.

Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and sugar in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk the oil, eggs, yoghurt and vanilla extract. Slowly add the chocolate mixture and stir until well combined. Then fold in the dry ingredients and mix until a smooth batter.

Divide the mixture evenly between the cake tins and bake for 18-20 minutes. Transfer the cakes onto wire racks to cool.

To make the icing, first melt the white chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl isn't touching the water. In another bowl, whisk the butter and icing sugar until smooth and light, then add the melted chocolate and stir well until combined. Layer the cakes on top of each other with icing and add some to the top, then decorate with chocolate shavings.
