Do you have a sweet tooth? Then feast on this indulgent collection of chocolate recipes, ranging from Mary Berry’s malted chocolate cake to Nadiya Hussain’s decadent brownie recipe
Here at Great British Food, we absolutely adore chocolate! Whether it’s melted into a sauce and poured over ice cream, decorating buttery biscuits or even flavouring a savoury jus, it’s one of our favourite flavours.
There’s nothing better, though, than a delicious chocolate cake. Moist sponges sandwiched with rich buttercream, or decorated with coffee frosting - that’s what it’s all about! So we’ve selected our top ten chocolate cake recipes, which range from a vegan coconut and chocolate cake to Nadiya Hussain’s deliciously decadent brownies!
Chocolate Meringue Cake
This chocolate meringue cake will really satisfy your sweet tooth. It has a rich, moist chocolate sponge and a sweet, crunchy chocolate meringue topping. You’ll bake the chocolate sponge first, and once it’s cooked and cooled, it’s time to crisp up the meringue layer in the oven. You’ll love the contrast of flavours and textures!
Cavolo Nero Brownies
This healthy brownie recipe relies on the innovative use of cavolo nero in its batter. It adds a touch of bitterness to the sweetness, and results in a lovely moist bake.
Mary Berry’s Malted Chocolate Cake
Looking for a Mary Berry chocolate cake recipe? We love her scrumptious malted chocolate cake, which is flavoured with malt extract and decorated with Maltesers. It’s the perfect celebration cake!
The Boho Baker's Whisky Brownies with Caramel Sauce
This is the decadent brownie recipe you’ve been looking for! They’re laced with whisky and served with a rich, sweet caramel sauce. Enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Nadiya Hussain's Money Can't Buy You Happiness Brownies
Another contender for the best brownie recipe comes from baking superstar Nadiya Hussain, who has really pulled out all the stops. It’s a three layered brownie: beginning with the triple chocolate brownie layer, followed by toasted nuts in dulce de leche, and finally topped with a baked cheesecake mixture. We can’t think of a better treat for movie night!
Chocolate Rye Cake with Boozy Crème Fraîche
One for the grown ups, this chocolate cake recipe uses rye flour for texture and flavour, and is accompanied by crème fraîche laced with amaretto liqueur.
Traditional Chocolate & Coffee Cake
If you’re looking for a traditional chocolate cake recipe, then look no further! This light chocolate sponge is laced with coffee, sandwiched with chocolate buttercream and frosted with a mocha icing. It’s the perfect cake for a coffee morning or a bake sale.
Raymond Blanc’s Flourless Chocolate Mousse Cake
Who better to provide a chocolate mousse cake recipe than two Michelin starred chef Raymond Blanc? It’s a cake of two halves - a flourless chocolate sponge topped with a rich, light chocolate mousse. It doesn’t take long to make, but remember to account for the three hours setting time!
Golden Ale & Dark Chocolate Cake
Ale might not be a traditional chocolate cake ingredient but it really helps moisten and aerate the sponge, as well as providing a slight malty bitterness to offset the sweetness of sugar and chocolate. We found this sumptuous chocolate and golden ale cake recipe to be a real crowdpleaser!
Dark Chocolate Fondant
Ah, chocolate fondant - the downfall of many a contestant on a baking show! With this easy chocolate fondant recipe you’ll be able to do better, and create a cake with a molten chocolate centre. Happy baking!
