Yields: 12 

Planning Time: 25 mins 

Absolute Time: 1 hour 10 mins 


For the cake 

225 g plain flour 
1/2 tsp. fine ocean salt 
300 g caster sugar 
1/2 tsp. bicarbonate of pop 
1 tsp. preparing powder 
75 g cocoa powder 
2 huge eggs 
125 mL vegetable oil, in addition to extra to oil 
200 mL buttermilk 
200 mL blended espresso 
1 tsp. vanilla concentrate 

For the icing 

225 g unsalted spread, mellowed 
400 g icing sugar 
1 tsp. vanilla concentrate 
1 tbsp. milk 
50 g strawberry nesquik powder 
To beautify 
100 g strawberry jam 
Chocolate secured strawberries 


Preheat your stove to 180°C (160°C Fan). Oil and line 2 x 20.5cm (8in) round, not free bottomed, cake tins. In an enormous bowl include the plain flour, ocean salt, caster sugar, bicarbonate of pop and heating powder. Strainer in the cocoa powder. Whisk together until consolidated. 

In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, vegetable oil and buttermilk and gradually add to the dry fixings, consistently whisking. When this is included, pour in the espresso and vanilla concentrate. 

Empty the blend into the readied tins and prepare on the center rack for 25-30 minutes, until a stick embedded into the center confesses all. Leave to cool in the tin for 15 mins, at that point cautiously turn out onto a wire rack to cool totally. 

To make the buttercream, beat the spread until light and cushy, around 4 minutes. Include the icing sugar a piece at once, beating great after every expansion to fuse. Include the vanilla, milk and Nesquik powder with a huge touch of salt, beat to join. Leave to the other side. 

When the cakes have cooled, place one of the cakes on your serving platter. Spread the strawberry jam equally over the cake. Sandwich the subsequent cake on top. Spread around ⅓ to ½ of the buttercream uniformly everywhere throughout the sides and top of the cake in a flimsy morsel coat. Put into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to solidify. Spread the remaining buttercream equally over the cake. 

To design, organize chocolate secured strawberries over the top, in the event that you like. Serve in cuts.
