For the cake –
- 3 eggs (large)
- 2 table Spoon Milk
- 180 gram Caster Sugar
- 180 gram Soft Butter
- 180 gram Self-raising Flour
- 30 gram Cocoa Powder
For the Icing –
- 2 table spoon of Raspberry Jam
- 100 gram of Dark Chocolate
- 30 gram of Unsalted Butter
For the Filling –
- 150 gram of Raspberries
- 200 ml of Double Cream
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Take a 20 cm round or heart shaped sandwich tin & grease the entire part.
2. Take a large bowl and mix all the cake ingredients together inside it. Use a spoon or electric whisk to smoothen the mixture. Pour the concoction inside the greased tin.
3. Bake it in the preheated oven for at least 35 to 40 minutes. Check whether the mixture has shrunk from all sides of the tin or not. If yes, then take out the tin from the oven and let it cool.
4. For the filling – Take the cream and whisk gently until it gets stiff. On the other hand, take the raspberries and spread them on the bottom half of your prepared cake. Cut the cake from the middle horizontally and spread the prepared cream mixture over there. Place the top most cake layer over the cream and gently press down.
5. For the icing – Take a sauce pan, heat it and melt the jam until molten. Spread the liquid on the top of the cake gently.
6. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a bowl. Let it cool completely.
7. Spread the prepared chocolate on top of the cake. Avoid spreading it around the down side. Leave it for an hour and your yummy cake is ready to serve.
If you don’t have enough time for baking, it is best to opt for custom cakes rather than purchasing the ready made ones. This is because you can incorporate your love and feelings in it. You can even write down some love messages on the top of the kuchen for the love of your life.
