Chocolate Explosion Cake

When it comes to a simple to make cake that takes no time to make, a chocolate explosion cake is the answer. Big man loves all sweets so I knew this would be a winner for his 9th Birthday.

As we are celebrating Birthdays galore at the moment, this is a small cake. I used a 5inch cake pan. If you want to make an 8 inch cake, I suggest double the ingredients.

Chocolate Explosion Cake


  • 3oz self rasing flour
  • 4oz caster sugar
  • 4oz butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1oz cocoa powder
  • 1 tub of Betty Crocker's chocolate fudge frosting (I used about half a tub.)
  • 2 packets of chocolate fingers
  • ribbon
  • a selection of your favourite chocolates and chocolate bars
  1. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, eggs and butter together. Separate between two 5 inch round spring form pans. Bake at 180C until a skewer comes out clean.
  2. When cool, sandwich together with chocolate fudge frosting.
  3. Spread frosting on the side of the cake and stick chocolate fingers around the sides. Tie a ribbon around the middle.
  4. Spread chocolate frosting on the top of the cake.
  5. Cut the chocolate bars into varying sizes and arrange at the back of the cake.
  6. Add smaller chocolates to the front of the cake.
There you go, one easy peasy homemade cake for a chocolate lover!
