This is a good alternative to just plain chocolate.


  • 250g Butter
  • 100g toblerone
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup booze of choice ( I use baileys or similar )
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups caster sugar
  • 1 TBSP honey.

  • 1/3 cup cocoa

  • 3/4 cup SR flour
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 large or 3 small eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


    combine the first set of ingredients in a heavy based saucepan and heat gently until sugar and butter and chocolate are combined , set aside for a half hour to cool .
    Whisk in sifted dry ingredients , eggs and essence.

    Cook in a tin lined with baking paper , at 160 degrees celcius for the first half hour , reduce heat to 150 and cook for a further hour or hour and a half , until a skewer comes out clean.

    This cake keeps very well and actually improves with age.

do you use unsalted butter?

I know I am possibly a little late answering , but I didn't get a notification . I used to use unsalted and add a pinch of salt, now I just use salted as I feel chocolate needs a little salt.
