This is the pic of the collapsed cake!!
This cake is called BOUNTY CAKE..because of its rich chocolate sponge and then creamy coconut filling and excellent chocolate topping
This recipe was taken from the internet and i adjust it a bit to suit myself. It is a verry delicate cake and each time i make it i pray it doesnt crumble or fall apart. The cake has to be cooled totally before its cut to do the filling and i never seem to have the patience…I think thats where i fail!! I will share a few pics of the way i have made it various times so you can have an idea.
INGREDIENTS FOR THE CHOCOLATE SPONGE (verry light and amazingly moist=
1.25 cup sugar
1.25 cups white flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon each baking powder and soda bicarbonate
2 tablespoons of nesquik drinking chocolate powder
1/2 tsp each salt and white vinegar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup boiling water , TO BE ADDED LAST
mix all the 1st 7 ingredients well. add rest of ingredients and lastly the boiling water. put into a baking dish and bake in a preheated oven at 170 and COOL IT COMPLETELY….or even better keep in the fridge for a few hours. Then you can slice it in half through the middle to fill it
200 grams white chocolate
1/4 cup cream
1/4 cup or more dessicated coconut
over a double boiler melt the white chocolate and then add the cream and mix well. Add the coconut and mix well again and cool. If it gets a bit hard and cant be spread add some liquid milk to it.
FOR THE GANACHE
200grams milk or dark chocolate slab
1/4 cup cream
sugar to taste if needed
over a double boiler melt the chocolate. add the cream and sugar and mix well.
cut the cake in half and spread the white chocolate mixture on it. Cover with the other half of the cake and then spread the GANACHE well all over it.
WHY IT COLLAPSED:
it collapsed because i did not allow it to cool thoroughly……………
