So my baby boy is 13 today and his request for a Birthday cake is Chilli Chocolate cake. I decided this year to make a slight twist on the usual chocolate sponge with chocolate fondant icing. and here it is…
175g caster sugar
175g vegan marg
175g self raising flour
tsp vanilla essence
1 fresh red chilli, a largish sweet chilli works best
chilli chocolate flakes
First put oven at 180 degrees.
Line the base of a round cake in with greaseproof paper and grease the walls of tin with vegan marge.
Cream caster sugar and vegan marg until lighter in colour and fluffy in texture. Add the chilli paste.
Put in the oven for 25/30 mins test cake by placing a skewer or knife in the centre of the cake if it comes out clean the cake is cooked.
Finally when the cake is cooked melt the chilli chocolate flakes and spread over the cake. If you like the cake spicier add more chilli to the cake mix.
The marbling effect on the cake happens when the chocolate dries and hardens. A perfect older child or adult Birthday cake
