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 :
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?
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.
