Why not try… Heating the knife in hot water before slicing the cake.
- FOR THE CAKE
- 75g unsalted butter and extra for greasing
- 300g digestive biscuits
- 300g white chocolate, broken in to pieces
- 1 x 420ml carton whipping cream at room temperature
- FOR THE SAUCE
- 100g dark chocolate, broken in to pieces
- 125ml double cream
- 1. Grease an 18cm loose-based round cake tin really well. Put the biscuits into a food processor and whiz until they are smooth crumbs. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
- 2. Melt the butter in a pan, then pour over the biscuit crumbs and stir to ensure all is covered. Press the biscuit mix well into the base of the tin with the back of a spoon. Put into the fridge for 30 minutes until firm.
- 3. Meanwhile, put the white chocolate into a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the base of the bowl. Leave until melted, then allow to cool.
- 4. Lightly whisk the whipping cream until it is forming very soft peaks. It’s very important not to over-whip the cream or, if you’re making it on a hot day, to allow it to become too warm, otherwise it will split when you fold it into the chocolate. Gradually fold the cream into the cooled white chocolate.
- 5. Pour the white chocolate mix on to the biscuit base and place in the fridge for an hour or so until it is firm.
- 6. To make the sauce, melt the dark chocolate over a pan of simmering water as you did the white chocolate. Add the double cream and stir together until smooth and glossy. Leave to cool until slightly stiff.
- 7. Decorate the top of the cake and leave to set, or then serve the remaining sauce with the cake.
