Dessert Recipe: Chocolate Domino Cake

Lifestyle, Recipes & Food!

So we all like cake, I mean, even being on a health kick we all like cake. It’s the one thing that a genius created and should be praised for sharing with the world. Cake is gooooood. But my favourite has to be my chocolate domino cake & here’s the recipe for it!

Chocolate Domino Cake

Ingredients (Cake Sponge):

– 150g Self Raising Flour

– 175g Butter (Melted)

– 175g Caster Sugar

– 3 x Eggs (Medium)

– 25g Cocoa Powder Sifted

Ingredients (Cake Icing):

– 300g Icing Sugar

– 25g Cocoa Powder Sifted

– 175g Margarine

– Liquorice Drops / Smarties / Any Other Cake Topping


1. Line a baking tray or cake tin with a little oil and greaseproof paper and preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4 / 180 degrees Celsius.

2. Add the flour, sugar, butter, eggs and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl and beat/whisk until smooth and fully mixed in.

3. Pour the cake mixture into the prepared cake tin / baking tray and spread evenly. Place in the centre of the oven and cook for 30 minutes or until cake springs back (best way to test is if you poke a fork through the middle and it comes back clean).

4. Once cooked through, leave to cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

5. Prepare the icing by mixing the icing sugar, margarine and cocoa powder in a bowl and mix until smooth. It should look a little similar to butter-cream but will be slightly lighter and smoother.

6. Spread the icing over the cake covering the top and sides and cut the cake into squares (around 2-3″ big).

7. Place on desired cake toppings (mine was smarties) into the forms of dice with numbers or dominoes with a liquorice strip in the middle to separate.

8. Plate & eat up!
