Super Duper Double Chocolate Hideaway Cake

Right…apparently we need to dig even deeper! So here’s a family secret recipe to make your day better (even if you are now your children’s teacher and there is no wine!)

Super Duper Double Chocolate Hideaway Cake (with pieces of chocolate hidden inside…shhhh!)

You’ll Need:
100g x Butter
100g x Brown Sugar
2 x Eggs (beaten)
100g Plain Flour
50g Drinking Hot Chocolate (not cocoa –preferably one with milk powder in it)
100g Cubes of Chocolate (we tend to err on the side of lots!)
1 x Teaspoon Baking Powder
50g x Chopped Macadamia or Almonds if you have (optional)
25g x Cranberries (optional)
2 x Teaspoons Coffee Granules (mixed into a small amount of boiling water)

To Make:
Grease and line a 7 inch cake tin. Turn the oven on to 180 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar together and beat the eggs in a separate bowl then gently whisk into the butter mix. Sieve all the dry ingredients together and fold into the mix. Next fold in the nuts and chocolate. Turn out into the cake tin and bake for 45 mins at 180 degrees. Do not remove from the tin. Allow to cool for half an hour and then place in the fridge for 1 hour. Enjoy with your family or curled up with a book, dog or glass of wine!
