Mix and Match Cake Slice by claremanson Mix and Match Cake Slice by claremanson
A light and fluffy chocolate sponge cake sandwiched together with sweet strawberry jam, pour with rich chocolate ganche and topped with sweet white chocolate chips.

Why the odd name? Well, I have lots of opened packets of ingredients that need using up so decided to try and incorporate as many of those ingredients as possible.  Those ingredients included brown sugar, double cream, butter, dark chocolate, jam and white chocolate chips. 

I was considering making cookies but I got a new cake stand from my sister-in-law for Christmas, so thought I had better try it out!

This cake was not made with gluten free flour today as it was for my kids, husband, family and friends lunchboxes! (My husband has only been at his new job for four months but already I am sending in treats for three extra people!)

I apologize for the photo not being that great, I was in a rush that day.

The cake as a whole.

I have two chocolate cake recipes you can try out.
This first one is best with normal flour and can easily be made vegan.

This next recipe is great for gluten free flour.  For an extra kick, replace 1/3 of the sugar for brown sugar.

I'm always doing that! Trying to figure out stuff to make from leftover ingredients that need using up. It's just a real pain when I have everything I need except for one thing! :XD: I wish I could make chocolate cake more. This sounds yummy particularly because of the jam sandwiching it together.
