Ingredients

  • 100 g Greenvale unsalted butter
  • 100 g The Pantry caster sugar
  • 100 g The Pantry plain flour
  • 100 g Dairyfine dark chocolate
  • 100 g Dairyfine milk chocolate
  • 2 large free-range eggs, separated
  • 248 ml carton of Cowbelle double cream
  • 1 packet Dairyfine white chocolate buttons

Instructions

1
Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line two 20cm (8in) sandwich tins.
2
Gently melt the butter and dark chocolate together in a saucepan.
3
In a bowl, beat the egg whites with ½ tsp caster sugar and a pinch of salt until they form peaks.
4
In another bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until pale, then fold in the flour. Mix in the melted chocolate mixture, then fold in the egg whites.
5
Divide the mixture between the two tins and bake for about 10 minutes until set. Allow to cool.
6
Pour 50ml (2fl oz) of the cream into a small heatproof bowl. Break up the milk chocolate and add it to the cream, then set over a pan of boiling water and allow to gently melt.
7
Meanwhile, whisk the remaining cream and use it to sandwich the cakes together. Spread the melted chocolate cream mixture over the top of the cake, then decorate with chocolate buttons.
