Baking | Chocolate Easter Cake



Hello Lovelies,
 
How nice is it to have lighter mornings and the evenings are starting to get a little longer, it's so nice walking to work in the morning and back in the evening and it still be light. It also means spring is on it's way which involves Easter and chocolate YUM!!

It's been a while since I've done an actually cake rather than cupcakes so I thought I would make this indulgent Easter cake surrounded by Kit-Kat's and topped with Mini Eggs.


You Will Need:

6 Large Eggs
350g Self-Raising Flour
350g Caster Sugar
350g Softened Butter (unsalted)
3 tsp Baking Powder
80g Cocoa Powder
8 tbsp boiling water
3 packs of Kit Kats
3-4 packs of Mini Eggs

Icing:
300ml double cream
300g chocolate

How to make:1) Set your oven to 180C, Gas 4 and grease your cake tins

2) Beat together eggs, flour, caster sugar, butter and baking powder in a large bowl until smooth

3) Put the Cocoa powder in a separate mixing bowl and add the boiling water until it makes a stiff paste, then add to your cake mixture and mix well

4) Distribute evenly between 4 cake tins (or 2 at a time which is what I done) and bake for around 20-25mins

5) Leave to cool completely before icing

6) to make the icing simply heat the double cream and chocolate together until all melted either over the hob or in the microwave.

7) set aside to cool completely as it will also thicken up when it cools down, I popped mine in the fridge for 10 minutes. Then spread over every layer of your cake and on top and around the outside

8) start placing your kit kats around the edge and scattering the mini eggs on top, tie it together with a cute Easter ribbon

ENJOY!
