Divide the mixture between two greased and lined 20cm cake tins and cook at 140C for 1 hour and 5 minutes. The baked cake should be well risen with a crust but should still wobble when shaken gently. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin.
When completely cool, remove from the tins. Sandwich together with chocolate ganache or buttercream or a mixture of the two.
For an extra special occasion, the cake can be covered in chocolate ganache and decorated with white chocolate curls and/or raspberries or strawberries. Makes a great birthday cake for any age!
