Place the chocolate in a bowl and melt it. Once the chocolate has melted, add the butter, piece by piece, stirring with a metal spoon until smooth.

Spoon into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Once cooked, stand cake for 10 minutes. Then turns out onto a wire rack and leave it to cool completely.

Iced cake

To make the icing:
Place the chocolate and the cream in microwave safe bowl. Microwave uncovered at 70% power for a couple of minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until it is completely smooth. Next, simply spread the icing on the top and sides of the cake.

The cake can now be eaten as, served with your favourite ice cream or custard or can be decorated in any way you like. The simplest form of decoration is a thin dusting of icing sugar but you can make your decorations as elaborate as you like.
