Chocolate Fudge Cake (serves 12)

We’re knees deep in menu planning for this winter at Tasty HQ and it’s cake day. Our chocolate fudge cake is a real guest favourite which we like to spruce up with the addition of maltesers, kinder bueno and strawberries for birthdays. It is a serious indulgence with a super moist cake mix and ultra oozing icing.

3tbsp cocoa flour
225g caster sugar
1/2tsp baking powder
