Method

This decadent chocolate cake makes a stunning centrepice and looks almost too good to cut - although once you do you will be rewarded with a striking marbled centre. The recipe was shared by My Lidl community member NicNac1: 'you can't beat it for afternoon tea!'.

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4. Grease a 1.5l bundt tin and set aside.
  2. Begin by making the cake. Combine the butter, sugar, eggs and flour in a large bowl and beat until smooth and blended.
  3. Spoon out half the mixture into the cake tin, creating large dots of mixture rather than a smooth layer.
  4. Mix the cocoa and water together in a small dish and add to the remaining mixture. Mix until smooth, then dot the mixture in the tin with the rest and swirl with the tip of a knife to create a marble effect.
  5. Level the surface of the cake and bake in the oven for 40 - 45 minutes, or until cooked through. Leave to cool in the tin for 30 minutes, then use a serrated knife to gently level the surface and turn out onto a plate.
  6. While the cake is cooling, prepare the icing. Melt the dark chocolate and 90g of the butter together in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, stirring until smooth and glossy.
  7. Pour the melted dark chocolate over the cake, ensuring the top is evenly coated. Leave to set a little while you melt the milk chocolate and remaining butter together in the same way.
  8. Drizzle the melted milk chocolate over the top of the cake. Use a vegetable peeler to shave off curls from a bar of white chocolate and scatter these over the top.
