How to Make:
#FOR THE CAKE:
1-Preheat oven to 320°F…In a pan over low heat, add the butter, chocolate, sugars, cocoa powder and Baileys.
2-When chocolate and butter has melted, whisk together to combine making sure to get rid of any lumps of sugar or cocoa powder.
3-Remove from heat and leave to cool for 5Mins.
4-Meanwhile, grease and line a 7-7,5-inches round cake tin.
5-Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside…Add the eggs to the slightly cooled chocolate mixture and whisk to combine.
6-Gently fold in the sifted flour mix until free of lumps. Scrape into cake tin then bake for about 40 to 45 Mins or until a skewer comes out clean,(ideally you want to see some moist crumbs stuck to it…This is one cake you don’t want to over-bake so better to be a little under than over). The tops of the cake will be a little cracked but this is normal for a mud cake (you’ll be trimming the tops and eating them anyway!).
7-Remove from oven and cool in tin for 10Mins before unmoulding and cooling it down completely. Trim the tops of the cake to level.
#FOR THE GANACHE:
1-Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set aside.
2-Bring the cream,Baileys and the salt to a simmer in a pan.
3-Pour over the chocolate and sit for a Minute. Gently stir to combine then beat in the butter.
4-Set aside at room temperature,& cool until it is thick enough to spread over your cooled cake.
5-Gently stir the ganache occasionally as it cools to keep the temperature even and the ganache smooth…
