Chocolate and Almond Cake
This cake was inspired by the clip below from 'Little Britain', it's my Dad's favourite sketch in the show.

This is the first time I have written with icing that I can remember.

  • Step 1

    Cream butter and sugar together.

  • Step 2

    Add the eggs and flour, mix alternating each ingrediants in small amounts until all is mixed in.

  • Step 3

    Sieve in the cocoa powder and add 2 handfuls of almonds. Mix together.

  • Step 4

    Place batter in a greased baking tin and cook for 20 mins - 1 hour depending on how much you put in the tin, obviously you could make a sandwich cake if you prefer. If you put the whole mix in one tin it could take about an hour so stab the middle with a knife to see if it's cooked, the knife will be clean when it comes out if the cake is cooked. Heat on a medium heat so that the outside will not be over done and the inside not done.

  • Step 5

    Leave to cool and decorate with icing and almonds or whatever you want. The almonds were stuck on with dots of icing.
