Recipe's preparation

    Milo Cake
  1. Pre-heat oven on 180 degrees. Prepare round 20cm cake tin.

  2. Ensure you have the right quanties of caster sugar, almond meal, icing sugar (set all aside separately)

  3. Using the butterfly, cream the butter and caster sugar together for 30 sec on speed 4. Once done, set for 1 min on speed 4, and add the eggs one by one while mixing

  4. Remove butterfly, scrape down sides.  Add Resd of cake ingredients (almond meal, flour, baking powder, milo powder buttermilk) Mix on 7 for 20 seconds or until cake mix is well combined

  5. Place in baking tin and bake in middle of oven for 40 min or until cake skewer comes out clean.

  6. Cream Cheese Filling
  7. Mix all ingredients on speed 8 for 15 minutes or until well combined.  Set aside to use in assembling step.

  8. Milo Choc Ganache
  9. Make the ganache about 10-15 minutes before you assemble.

    In clean bowl - Add cream and milo and heat 70 for 3 min on speed 2.  (milo dissolves better with heated cream - thus make sure it is well dissolved or repeat this step until well dissolved.  Do not increase heat as this will affect the cream consistency for the ganache)  Cool down to 60 before continuing with next step.

  10. Add dark Chocolate and heat on 60 for 4 minutes speed 5.

  11. Assembling the Cake
  12. Cut cake in 3 layers using sharp knife or cake wire.  

  13. Spread the cream chese mix on bottom layer and place middle layer back.  Spread cream cheese on middle layer and place top of cake back onto the cake.  You now have 5 layers (3 cake and 2 cream cheese layers)

  14. Ice the cake with ganach and decorate (Ideas for decoration: glazed cherries, fresh berries, milo powder dusting, icing sugar dusting, etc)

    If the ganach is harder (like icing sugar consitancy) spread it like Icing sugar.  Or you can pour luke warm ganache over cake and leave to set.

For an added layer of "crunch" sprinkle some milo powder on top of the cream cheese layer when assembling.  Milo powder can also be added to the cream cheese step for a bit of crunch

You don't have to use Almond meal - you can use flour in stead.  The almond meal just adds a bit extra flavour and richness. (Thus in total 200g flour if no almond meal is being used)

This cake is very rich and moist.
