If a rich caramel sugar cake with caramel icing isn’t indulgent enough for you, why not absolutely smother it in luscious dark chocolate ganache? Try not to faint with the thought of it.

As many of you already know, the slight bitterness of dark chocolate is wonderful for balancing out richness in a cake. Sounds counter-intuitive doesn’t it? But the warm and comforting caramel and chocolate flavours make this cake unbelievably delicious.

The cake master behind this amazing Caramel Burnt Sugar Cake is Radishes and Rhubarb.
