Lyd Bakes: Chocolate Fudge Cake

HOLY MOLY. Looking at this photo I want to eat this cake all over again, mmm. 

It was recently my boyfriend's little brothers 20th birthday, so I got back in the kitchen and whipped up another cake. Now, it's not as impressive as the last cake I made (which you can see here if you haven't read this yet), but I would say it definitely surpassed the last one in taste. This cake is so moist, but uses oil instead of butter in the sponge (which is great because I then spread butter icing all over it and topped it with chocolate...) 

I used the recipe below and would definitely recommend it -

Then to add the chocolate on top I just used a block of dark chocolate and scraped along it with a knife (Jamie's food tube have a tutorial on this here which are much better than mine....)

Let me know what you've all been getting up to in the kitchen recently, I love hearing what you guys make and getting some inspiration!
