Chocolate Sponge Cake with Almonds

I found some chocolate in the fridge and some sliced almonds in the cupboard. I grabbed them both and came up with this!

Serves 8 Prep: 12 min Cook: 25 min

Ingredients

Cadbury's Dairy Milk Chocolate 108g
Butter 60g
Granulated sugar 80g
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
Honey 1 tsp
Eggs 2
Self raising flour 100g
Cocoa powder 1 tsp
Sliced almonds 5 tbsp
Double cream 150ml
Granulated sugar 25g

Method

1
I used 6 small 18g packs of Cadbury's dairy milk chocolate. Put 5 packs in a bowl and melt by heating for 1 minute in the microwave.
2
Put the butter in a separate bowl and microwave it for 30 seconds to melt it. Add the sugar and mix well with a spatula.
3
Add the melted chocolate, vanilla extract and honey in a bit of water and stir. Add the eggs and mix well again.
4
Sift in the flour and cocoa powder and mix lightly so as not to form any gluten. Pour into a 20cm diameter cake tin.
5
Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of almond slices evenly over the top and bake for 16 minutes in a preheated oven at 180℃. Check it's done by piercing with a skewer - if it comes out dry, it's done.
6
Allow the cake to cool, then remove from the tin and slice in half across.
7
Put the double cream and 25g of granulated sugar in a bowl and whisk to make stiff peaks.
8
Finely chop the remaining pack of chocolate with a knife and add into the cream mixture with 2 tbsp of sliced almonds.
9
Spread the cream evenly on the lower part of the sponge cake, right to the edge. Cover with the top sponge, it's ready!
