Before topping had set
After topping has set





  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180c 350f or gas mark 4
  2. Grease and line the bottom of a medium size heart shape backing tin.
  3. Cream the margarine and sugar together and add few drops red food colouring.
  4. Beat in the egg adding a little flour at a time until all mixed in.
  5. Place the mixture in the tin and cook for about 30 minutes until golden in colour,well risen and firm to touch.
  6. Leave to cool 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Using a sharp knife slice the cake horizontally and spread one half with jam.
  8. Whip the cream and spread over the other half and sandwich back together.
  9. In a pan place the double cream,cooking chocolate and few drops of food colouring in a pan over a low heat and stir until melted.
  10. Remove from the heat and leave to cool stirring occasionally.
  11. Spread the cooled mixture over the cake and leave to set in a refrigeater for a few hours or overnight until set.
  12. Enjoy !!
