This is the one I make and you can make this into a cake. Put the mixture in 2 22cm cake tins then sandwich it together.

Oven: 170c fan forced

60g unsalted butter
150g castor sugar

120ml buttermilk

150g plain flour
½ tsp salt

½ tsp bi carb soda

Mix cocoa with food colour, red colour and vanilla into a smooth paste. Add to the sugar/butter mixture and combine till smooth.

Add flour alternating with butter milk to the mixture on slow speed till all combined.

Ive made this cake this evening -and it does not tell you how to bake it for.I went with an hour being the size of the two cakes.I have never baked two before. so I swapped them around twice within the hour. and darn they sunk in the middle.

Plus the icing I used quality vanilla bean paste -so there is little black flecks.I'm sure it will taste fab. lol
