Total Time1 hr

Ingredients

  • 250 g melted butter slightly cooled
  • 3/4 cup 165g caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups 225g self raising flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup 185g milk
  • 3/4 cup 75g cocoa
  • 6 Tim Tam Biscuits
  • For the Icing
  • 1 1/2 cups 225g icing sugar mixture
  • 1 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tsp butter - softened
  • 2 tbsp boiling water
  • 5 Tim Tam Biscuits

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 160 degrees and line the base and sides of a 22cm round cake tin with baking paper.
  • Roughly chop six of the Tim Tams into large chunks and set aside until needed.
  • Chop the butter into 8 pieces of place into a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 1 minute on medium heat or until melted. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Sift the cocoa and self raising flour into a large bowl and add the caster sugar, eggs, milk, Tim Tam pieces and melted butter. Mix to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and place in the oven to bake for 40 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 15 minutes before carefully turning out onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Once the cake has cooled completely, you can make the chocolate icing by sifting together the cocoa and icing sugar into a medium bowl.
  • Add the softened butter and pour the boiling water directly over the butter.
  • Using a small whisk, combine all of the ingredients until the chocolate icing is smooth and is a spreadable consistency. If you find your icing is still a little firm, add an extra teaspoon of boiling water.
  • Use a large spoon to scoop the icing and place onto your cake. Spread the icing out using a spatula or butter knife until the cake is covered. Roughly chop the remaining five Tim Tams and place on top of the cake to decorate.
