Above is the link to the film on how to make this cake.
I love this cake and even though I’m not really a fan of valentines day, I am a fan of chocolate!
Pre heat the oven to 160 (fan)
Have all the ingredients weighted out and at room temperature.
Grease and line three cake tines.

135g light brown muscovado sugar
100g salted butter
300g self raising flower
4 tablespoons of cocoa powder
2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
130g dark chocolate, melted and cooled
3 tablespoons of treacle
4 tablespoons of milk, warmed
Cream the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.

Pour into the three cake tins and bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
350g melted dark chocolate
