How To Make A Chocolate And Peanut Butter Drip Cake:


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas mark 4. Grease and line the bases of 3 x 20cm loose-bottom cake tins.
  2. For the cake, dissolve the dark muscovado sugar in the boiling water and set aside until needed. In a mixing bowl using an electric handheld mixer, or in a KitchenAid fitted with paddle attachment, cream together the Stork with butter and caster sugar until well blended. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat after each addition. Add the buttermilk along with the cocoa powder, and beat until smooth. Sift over the flour and bicarb and beat just until incorporated, then slowly pour in the sugar-water mixture, beating. Once you have a smooth batter, divide between the cake tins and bake for 20-25 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool in the tins for 5 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. For the buttercream whisk together the Stork and peanut butter until very pale and fluffy – about 5 minutes. Then add the icing sugar and whisk again for a further 5 minutes until very pale.
  4. When the cakes are cooled, sandwich them together with a layer of buttercream in between each cake. Put the cake onto the cake card and onto an icing turntable (if using) and with the small offset palette knife, spread a generous helping of buttercream over the top and sides of the cake – be careful not to touch the cake with the palette knife to avoid mixing crumbs into the buttercream. Get the top and sides as smooth and sharp as possible, then chill the cake for 20 minutes. Put the leftover buttercream in the piping bag.



  1. Make a ganache by placing the chocolate chips into a heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan bring the cream to a simmer, remove it from the heat, then pour it over the chocolate chips. Wait for 30 seconds then whisk together into a smooth, glossy ganache.
  2. Pour a little ganache over the top of the cake and coax it towards the edges of the cake allowing it to run down the sides. Chill for 10 minutes.
  3. To finish decorating, pile a selection of various chocolates and sweets on top of the cake – this looks better not quite central, and herded together in one area.
