Flake chocolate cake

Flake chocolate cake



  • 200g good-quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 175g unsalted butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour, sifted
  • 100g almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder, sifted
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk
  • 2 Cadbury Flake chocolate bars, crumbled


Preheat oven to 160°C.

Grease and line a 20cm springform cake pan.

Place chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water until melted, making sure the bowl does not touch the water.

Stir until smooth and set aside to cool.

Place butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer for about 5 minutes or until pale.

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.

Fold in flour, almond meal, baking powder, milk and melted chocolate.

Pour mixture into cake pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Cool slightly, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.

For chocolate cream, heat 250ml carton cream over low heat, add 100g chocolate (or more if you want a stronger chocolate taste) and stir until melted. Chill for about 15 minutes, beat until thickened but still a little soft.

To serve, spread cream over cooled cake and sprinkle Flake bars over the top.
