Tanya Burr's Sunday Cake Recipe

Hi chappes,

Today I wanted to share a recipe with you which is Tanya Burr's Sunday Cake Recipe. I know its not Sunday but its a great cake for anytime of the week. And i have decorated it slightly different to hers so i wanted to share what I used. And just to warn you this cake does use a lot of chocolate! X

170g unsalted butter
170g caster sugar
3 eggs
140g self-raising flour
30g cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder

For the Butter Icing:
90g Butter
170g icing sugar
cocoa powder, to taste

For the toppings;
200g milk chocolate

My decorations;
3 packets of chocolate fingers
1 packet of mixed buttons
1 box of maltesers 

. Preheat the oven to 180C. Line the baking sheets
. Mix all the cake ingredients until combined
. Bake for 18-20 minutes and leave to cool
. For the butter icing, mix all the ingredients together till smooth and once the cake is cooled spread the icing over one cake and sandwich them together.
. For the topping - melt the milk chocolate and spread it all around the cake.
. I decorated it by creating button flowers- by placing a malteser n the middle and surrounding it by buttons. Then covered the circumference of the cake with the chocolate fingers. But you can decorate by whatever you like X
. And enjoy!!

Hope you like this post and try this recipe.
