Yields: 22 cm cake

  • Cake:

  • 15 ml baking powder
  • 3 ml bicarbonate of soda
  • 3 ml fine salt
  • 250 ml plain yogurt
  • 2 x 55 g Bar One chocolate, cut into chunks

Mix cocoa powder in boiling water until smooth and allow slight cooling.
Cream butter and sugar very well. Add eggs, one-at-a-time, beating well in-between. Then add cocoa mixture.
Sift all your dry ingredients, add bar one chunks to this. Alternately, add sifted ingredients with yogurt to the creamed mixture.
Grease and line a 22 cm loose-bottomed cake tin, spoon in cake mixture.

  • Chocolate sauce:
  • 55 g Bar One chocolate
  • 100 g Dark Chocolate, we use Belgium
  • 60 ml cream
  • 45 g unsalted butter

While the cake is baking, mix up all the sauce ingredients in a sauce pan over a low heat until completely melted. Once the cake is baked, remove from the tin, place onto a cooling rack. Using a skewer make holes all over the top of the cake, then pour over the warm sauce. Leave over night covered in the fridge.

  • Caramel sauce layer:  (make the day of the cake baking)
  • 200 g brown sugar
  • 250 ml cream
  • 40 g salted butter

Caramelize the sugar over a low heat in a pan, add butter and then cream. Lightly simmer. Strain through a sieve and place into the fridge.

  • Whipped cream layer:
  • 250 ml cream, whipped
  • ICING:
  • PART one
  • 2 x 55 g Bar One chocolate
  • 100 g dark chocolate, we use Belgium
  • 200 g pink and white Marshmallows
  • 250 ml cream

Place all the above ingredients into a big bowl and melt over a Bain Marie.

  • PART two
  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cups sifted icing sugar
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 5 ml vanilla essence

Cream all the above ingredients together.

  • PART three
    Mix part one and part two together well.

Putting the cake together:
Cut the cake into three layer. Place a caramel layer and cream layer in-between the layers.
Finish with the above gooey Bar One Icing. Use a hot knife and take care in icing this. Decorate with Bar One chunks and marshmallows if wanted.

    Ek het hom so tydjie terug probeer. Baie soet en oordadig. Buitenste versiersel is baie baie lekker maar dik en swaar.
