Chocolate? It must be Sunday!

What better for a Sunday afternoon than a, dive in with a spoon and eat it all yourself, chocolate cake.  Nothing in the world like it.

Although, truth be told, any day ending in Y is good enough excuse for chocolate cake in my book.

Today though I won’t be posting a recipe for a cake BUT instead the most fantastic chocolate fudge icing to sit on top.
This recipe comes from “Cupcakes Galore” by Gail Wagman.

You will need :
65g butter
120g chocolate pieces
450g icing sugar
80ml hot milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Did I mention this icing is not for the faint hearted?

To make:
Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of hot water.Stir until it’s just melted and leave to the side to cool.
Put the sugar and hot milk into a bowl and stir until smooth. Add the vanilla, salt and the chocolate mixture. Using an electric mixer, beat the mixture until smooth and thickened. This should take about 5 minutes.
Use and enjoy as you wish.
