Servings  

Preparation

Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until light and creamy.

Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and add a bit at a time to the butter/ sugar mixture. Finally, whisk for a few minutes to get some air into the mixture.

Add the chocolate chips.

Sift the dry ingredients and add them to the wet mix a bit at a time, folding in gently.

Divide between two greased and floured (15cm) sponge tins.

Bake for 10-15 minutes at 170*c.

Cool on wire rack.

For the filling, mix together the butter, icing sugar and cocoa. Leave in fridge for 5-10 minutes to stop it being too sloppy. Mix again before spreading on cake.

Spread the filling over one of the sponges then top with the other sponge.

Make a cup of tea and cut a BIG slice.

ENJOY!!
