Bake-Along #25 - Bake-Along 1st Anniversary Layer Cake : Chocolate Fudge Cake

Happy 1st Anniversary to Bake Along!!
Happy Birthday to Mummy!! ^-* (5 days ago!)

One 6" & Two 4" cakes

Dulce De Leche Ganache!! addicting & sweet!

A 4" Chocolate Fudge Cake :) sweet & petite :)

Recipe adapted (with slight modifications) from Carnation
Ingredient (makes two 7" cake or two 4" + one 6" cake)
  • 175gm self-raising flour
  • 2½ tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 120gm caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml corn oil
  • 150ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 125gm dark chocolate, melted
  • 397gm Dulce De Leche (caramel condensed milk)

  1. Sift flour, cocoa powder & baking soda in a mixing bowl. Add in sugar and stir well to combine.
  2. Combine eggs, oil, milk, vanilla extract and 2 tbsp of DDL and stir well.
  3. Pour eggs mixture into dry ingredients and fold well to combine.
  4. Pour batter into lined cake pan and bake in preheated oven at 160 deg cel for 25-30mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  5. Rest cake in pan for 10mins. Unmould and cool completely on rack.
  6. Combine melted chocolate and DDL and stir till smooth. (Microwave on high for 30 secs if mixture is too thick to spread.)
  7. Place a slice of cake on a serving plate, spread some DDL ganache over and top with another slice of cake. Cover cake with remaining ganache. Chill in fridge before serving.
* Note : After layering the cake, I make a crumb coating over the cake, chill for 10mins, then spread ganache over the cake and use a piping tip #123 and run the patterns across the top of the cake :D

I loves the texture of the cake, very moist and light, compatible with the sweet & rich ganache :)

Hi Peng, I came across your blog as this is my first time joining the Bake Along. I love the idea of using caramelised condensed milk... must try in future. I also saw a recipe recently where the caramelised condensed milk was used to make ice cream!
