This is a handy celebration cake that's simple to make and can then be dressed in so many ways.
Ingredients:For the cookie:275g plain flour135g light brown sugar115g unsalted butter (melted)55g caster sugar1 egg1 tbsp cornflour1 tsp bicarbonate of soda1 tsp vanilla extract½ tsp salt100g dark chocolate chips100g white chocolate chips
For the buttercream:150g icing sugar70g unsalted butter (room temp)½ tsp vanilla extract
Method:Preheat oven to 170⁰C (fan), grease and line a 23cm round springform cake tin.
In a large bowl mix the flour, cornflour and bicarb of soda. In another large bowl, add the melted butter, caster and light brown sugar and whisk until everything is mixed and you have a smooth mixture. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk to again. Add the dry ingredients to the wet along with 85g of the white and 85g of the dark chocolate chips. Using a spatula or large spoon, combine all ingredients until a thick dough has formed.
Press this into the prepared tin, scatter the remaining chocolate chips over the top and place in the oven for 22-25 mins. The cookie will be done when the top feels firm and not wobbly. Take out the oven and allow to cool for a few mins before placing on a wire rack and allowing to cool completely.
Once fully cooled, make the buttercream by placing icing sugar, butter and vanilla in a large bowl and beating for a few mins until smooth and fluffy. Use a piping bag and nozzle to decorate as desired.
