Peppermint Chocolate Cake by claremanson Peppermint Chocolate Cake by claremanson
A fluffy chocolate sponge cake with a peppermint flavoured white chocolate and holly Christmas sprinkles.

Cake baked in a loaf tin as well cupcakes and cookies have become a regular thing to cook with for me these days as they make the perfect size treats for my kids and husbands lunchboxes.

TIP: When flavouring melted chocolate with essences and extracts or colouring it, add a touch of vegtable oil if the chocolate starts to go grainy due to the added liquid to bring it back to a lovely smooth consistency again.

If you are baking this Christmas, why not take a photo and enter my Christmas baking contest :)
Claremanson's Christmas ContestTheme: General Christmas Baking
From holding a recent poll, it seems the majority of you are most interested in baking traditional food for your country/family or food you usually bake over Christmas rather than a set recipe.  Therefore I have decided that as long as it is relevant to Christmas in some way, shape or form in recipe, flavour or presentation it will be considered as an entry.
 
Rules and requirements:

You must include Christmas into your baking, decorating or surroundings in some shape or form else your entry will not be included.
If what you you usually make isn't very Christmasy looking or tasting then why not try to add some more Christmas into your food by adding Christmas sprinkles onto candy and cupcakes, flavours such as cinnamon or cranberry, themed cupcake cases, festive shaped cookies etc.
You entry must be new for Christmas 2013.
It must be homemade, not shop bought.
Please state in your e
