#TryThis: White Chocolate and Galaxy Counter Cake

A slice of cake that is truly out of this world

This is a wonderful recipe that is perfect for treating yourself with, especially during summative season! Serve with some fresh strawberries for that extra indulgent touch.

Ingredients (Makes 1 whole cake):

For the cake:

  • 2 eggs
  • 225g of sugar
  • 225g of self raising flour
  • 225g of butter
  • 126g of galaxy counters
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

For the filling:

  • 130g of butter
  • 100g of white chocolate
  • 250g of icing sugar, to serve

Method:

For the cake:

  • First slightly warm the butter so it’s easier to whisk, then pop it in a bowl, add in the sugar and mix.
  • Next, add in the eggs and then beat.
  • Add in the flour and beat.
  • Add in the vanilla extract and beat.
  • Finally, add in the galaxy counters and give it a stir with a spoon.
  • Line 2 baking tins with baking paper, pour equal amounts of the mix into each.
  • Pop them in the oven for approx. 12 minutes before covering with a tin foil (this stops it burning) and bake for a further 8 minutes.
  • Let the cake cool.

For the icing:

  • Whilst the cake is cooking, melt the white chocolate in a bowl over boiling water.
  • Pop a fork in between the edge of the pan and the bowl to let some steam out.
  • Slightly warm the butter, add in the icing sugar, then the chocolate and whisk everything together.
  • When the cakes have cooled, spread the icing on one of the cakes and then sandwich them together.
  • Finally, top with icing sugar and enjoy!
