Instructions

Chocolate cake
  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4. Lightly grease the base of two 18cm sandwich tins.
  2. Add the flour, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda into a mixing bowl. Add the caster sugar and mix until the mixture is well combined.
  3. Make a well in the centre. Add the golden syrup, eggs, melted Flora Buttery and milk. Beat well with an electric whisk until smooth.
  4. Pour the cake mixture into the tins.
  5. Bake for approximately 20-25 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. If any wet mixture clings to the skewer, return to the oven for 5 mins, then check again.
  6. Leave to cool for 10 mins in the tins before turning out onto a cooling rack.
Chocolate icing
  1. Prepare the icing by beating the Flora spread until soft.
  2. Gradually beat in the icing sugar and cocoa powder, then add enough of the milk to make the icing easily spreadable.
  3. Sandwich together the 2 layers of cake with the frosting.
  4. Cover the sides and the top of the cake with more icing and decorate with some colourful cake sprinkles.
