1tbsp instant coffee granules

200g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

200g salted butter, chopped

170g self-raising flour

400g light muscovado sugar

For the fudge icing

50ml double cream

Step 2

Grease and line two 20cm Victoria sponge tins.

Step 3

Heat 200ml of the Arctic Iced Coffee in a pan until just steaming and stir in the coffee granules. Retain the rest of the Arctic Iced Coffee for the icing.

Step 4

Turn off the heat and add the chopped chocolate and butter to the pan. Stir until the butter and chocolate are melted, if they don’t quite melt from the heat of the coffee, put the pan back on the hob and warm gently.

Step 5

In a separate bowl mix together the flour and sugar, making sure there are no lumps. In another bowl beat the eggs.

Step 6

Pour the chocolate and the eggs into the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until everything is combined.

Step 7

Divide the batter between the two tins and bake for 35-40 mins until the cakes are risen and cooked through.

Step 8

Allow the cakes to cool a little in the tins, then turn out onto a wire rack to go cold.

Step 9

To make the fudge icing, heat the remaining Arctic Iced Coffee with the cream until just steaming.
