    • Double chocolate swirled cake

      Double chocolate swirled cake

      The Great British Bake Off's double chocolate swirled cake is sure to impress. Ask the Bakers what kind of cake they make for a birthday or other special occasion and almost inevitably they say chocolate – the richer and more eye-catching the better. This one ticks all the boxes. Dark and white chocolate mixtures are swirled together in the tins to make the sponge layers and these are sandwiched with a rum truffle ganache. The final, spectacular touch is the icing: dark chocolate ganache marbled with white chocolate. The cake tastes even richer if left for a day before cutting.
