									                           Mulled Wine Chocolate Cake Recipe
Ingredients;
    • Mulled wine:
    • 600ml red wine
    • 100g sugar
    • 60g sultanas
    • 6 cardamon pods
    • 6 cloves
    • 1 stick cinnamon
    • freshly squeezed juice of an orange

Cake:
   •    230g good quality dark chocolate
   •    150g unsalted butter
   •    400 ml mulled wine
   •    2 large eggs
   •    160g sugar
   •    260g self raising flour

Ganache:
   • 200ml mulled wine
   • 400g good quality dark chocolate

Method:
   • Add all the mulled wine ingredients into a saucepan and gently simmer for 30 mins. Strain
      the wine keeping the sultanas but discarding the cloves, cardamons and cinnamon.

   •    Grease and line a 7" cake tin.
   •    Preheat the oven to 170C/325F
   •    Place 400ml of the mulled wine, the chocolate and the butter into a saucepan and gently heat
        until the chocolate and butter have melted. Leave to cool slightly.
   •    In a bowl lightly beat the eggs, slowly add the melted chocolate mixture beating well.
   •    Beat in the flour and sugar.
   •    Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 40-45 mins until a skewer inserted into the middle
        comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin.

   •    Melt the chocolate and beat it as you slowly pour in the wine, (which should also be hot.)
        Beat until they are combined.
   •    Take half the ganache and stir in the sultanas.
   •    Cut the cake in half and pour over the ganache with the sultanas. Put it into the fridge to
        harden.
   •    Place the other half of the cake on top (I turn the cake upside down so the top becomes the
        bottom as you may find it cracks a little) and pour over the rest of the ganache.
   •    Decorate by splashing the cake with edible gold paint.
