Preheat oven to 180˚C (fan forced) or 350˚FButter and line a 22cm spring form baking tin. Set aside.Half ll a small saucepan with water, cover with a heat-proof bowlinto which you add the chocolate.

clean from the centre of the cake. Remove and allow to cookfully before placing cake on a wire rack in preparation for icing.To make the icing: melt chocolate in a pot over water as above instage 2* of the cake prep. While the chocolate is melting add theicing sugar, cocoa and butter into the bowl of a stand mixer ttedwith the paddle beater. Beat together until well combined then pourin the melted chocolate ~ the mixture may look very dry and crumblyand almost ‘split’ but rest assured this is ne. Add the water andmilk and beat everything together gradually increasing the speed asyou go until you get a thick, glossy and smooth chocolate icing.To ice the cake, spread out 1 or 2 pieces of aluminium foil of a at,clean surface onto which place the cake (on it’s wire rack - thismethod makes so super fast cleaning up!). Using an angled paletteknife ice the cake using up all the frosting. Allow to stand for 10minutes then chill in the fridge. If using raspberries, place them on the cake just before the icing is totally set so you have a bitof ‘glue’ to stop them falling off. Dust with icing sugar and servealong with the whipped cream mixed with the amaretto liqueur.If you are not using raspberries, a good way to serve the cake is toheat it for a minute or two as the warmed cake and fudgy icing isextra goooood! :)* * * *
