4. 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
5. 75g Fairtrade caster sugar

7. 2 tbsp golden syrup
8. 150ml Co-op whole milk
9. 2 large Co-op British free range eggs, lightly beaten
10. 1 tsp vanilla extract
11. 100g Co-op Irresistible fudge, crumbled, to decorate

For the caramel

12. 25g Co-op Fairtrade light brown soft sugar
13. 50g Co-op set honey
14. 100ml Co-op double cream
15. 15g Co-op unsalted butter
16. Pinch of sea salt

For the buttercream

17. 3 large Co-op British free range egg whites
18. 200g Fairtrade caster sugar
19. 325g Co-op unsalted butter, cut into 2cm cubes
20. 200g Co-op Fairtrade white chocolate, melted and cooled

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°/Gas 4
2. Grease and line two 20cm cake tins
3. Combine the flour, cocoa, bicarb and sugars in a bowl
4. Make a well in the centre and add the syrup, oil, milk, egg and vanilla
5. Beat together until smooth
6. Divide the mixture between the tins and bake for 25-30 mins, until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean
7. Leave to cool in the tins for 10 mins, then turn out to cool completely
8. For the caramel, combine all of the ingredients, apart from the salt, in
9. a saucepan and place over a low heat
10. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, then turn up the heat and bubble for 4-5 mins, until golden and syrupy
11. Add the salt and leave to cool completely, stirring occasionally
12. For the buttercream, put the egg whites and sugar in a large heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water
13. Whisk until the mixture is fairly hot to the touch and the sugar has dissolved Take the bowl off the heat and beat with an electric whisk on its highest setting for 8-10 mins, until the mixture has cooled down and tripled in volume
14. Lower the speed of the whisk slightly and start to incorporate the butter, a couple of cubes at a time, until it’s all used up — the mixture should be thick and shiny
15. Mix in the white chocolate
16. To assemble, place one sponge on a stand and top with a thick layer of buttercream, right to the edges
17. Top with the other sponge and spread the remaining buttercream over the whole cake, using a palette knife to smooth
18. Chill for 30 mins
19. Drizzle the caramel over the edges of the cake with a spoon and top with the crumbled fudge to serve
