So what to make for a ‘I LOVE…’ themed Clandestine Cake Club on Valentines Weekend.
Rolos and my quilted heart shaped bundt tin came to mind!
250g softened unsalted butter
100g dark brown muscovado sugar
330g caster sugar
3 large eggs
225g plain flour (all purpose)
90g cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1.5 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
135ml sour cream
mini rolos – or chop large rolos into quarters
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Large rolos for decorating the cake
Preheat oven to 170 degrees
Grease and flour your bundt tin
Cream the butter and sugar together
Add the eggs one at a time and beat until fluffy
Add one third of the dry ingredients, then the sour cream, then one third of the dry ingredients, then the buttermilk followed by the last of the dry ingredients.
Place one half of the batter in the tin, place the small rolos over the mixture, put the remainder of the batter on the top.
Bake for one hour then cool on a wire rack.
For the covering I melted two packs of full size rolos with two tablespoons of butter.
I then put rolos around the edge of the cake.
