5 STAR CHOCOLATE CAKE

Serves 10

Hands-on time: 30 minutes

Hands-off time: 1 hour 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS

For the cake:

5 (40g each) Cadbury 5 Star Bars

2 large eggs

1 cup milk

½ cup oil

2 cups (400g) sugar

1¾ cups (198g) self-raising flour

¾ cup (75g) cocoa powder

For the ganache:

2 (40g each) Cadbury 5 Star Bars

3-4 tbsp cream

For the icing:

1 cup (227g) butter, softened

2½ cups (300g) icing sugar

½ tin (130g) caramel

METHOD

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line 2 x 20cm round cake tins with baking paper and lightly grease with non-stick cooking spray.

For the cake:

2. Chop the Cadbury 5 Star Bars into 1cm thick chunks and set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, add the eggs, milk, oil and sugar and whisk until combined. *Chef’s Tip: Use room temperature eggs as they blend easier when making a batter and helps to create an even rise during baking!

4. Sieve in the self-raising flour and cocoa powder. Whisk until smooth.

5. Slowly whisk 1 cup of hot water into the mixture.

6. Divide the batter between the prepared cake tins. Reserve half of the chopped Cadbury 5 Star Bars for later and scatter the rest over the batter of each tin.

7. Bake for 30-40 minutes until cooked through. *Chef’s Tip: A skewer that comes out clean when inserted means the cake is done!

8. Cool the cakes in the tins for 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool for 30 minutes. *Chef’s Tip: Cooling the cakes in the tins first prevents them from breaking!

For the ganache:

9. Finely chop the 2 Cadbury 5 Star Bars and place them in a heatproof bowl with the cream. Microwave on high in 30 second intervals until melted. Stir in between each interval. Refrigerate for 10 minutes to cool while preparing the icing.

For the icing:

10. In a large mixing bowl, mix the butter, sugar and caramel with a hand mixer for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. *Chef’s Tip: Place the icing in the fridge for 10 minutes if it is too soft!

11. Spread half of the caramel icing over the top of one of the cooled cakes. Sprinkle half of the remaining Cadbury 5 Star chunks over the icing and layer the other cake on top.

12. Spread the remaining caramel icing evenly over the top.

13. Form a slight hollow, about the diameter of a fist, in the centre of the icing with the back of a spoon and spoon the cooled 5 Star chocolate ganache inside. Sprinkle the remaining Cadbury 5 Star chunks along the edge of the top of the cake to create a border.

14. Cut into 10 slices and ENJOY!
