Annie's chocolate Christmas cake recipe



To make this decadent treat you’ll need:

1.5 cups of Plain Flour (approximately)
200g of Dark Chocolate
250g of Butter
1 tsp of Baking Powder
3 shots (90ml) of BBCC Espresso or Strong Plunger (90ml)
1 cup of Castor Sugar
3/4 cup of BBCC Chilli Cinnamon Drinking Chocolate
4 Eggs
150g of Dark Chocolate Chips


Firstly, cream together the butter and sugar. Then, incorporate the eggs, coffee, baking powder, and chilli cinnamon drinking chocolate powder. Transfer the mixture into a spacious bowl.

Melt the 200g of dark chocolate and blend it into the mixture, followed by adding the flour and dark chocolate chips.

Prepare a springform baking tin by buttering its sides and lining the bottom with baking paper, and pour the mix into the tin.

Bake the cake in the oven at 180°C for 35-45 minutes, checking its readiness with a skewer after 30 minutes. Once baked, allow the cake to cool in the tin.

Serve with a sprinkle of icing sugar and a dollop of double cream.

Note: If you prefer, the chilli-cinnamon chocolate powder or coffee elements can be omitted, but they add delightful nuances without overpowering the taste!
