Method

  1. Step 1. For the cake:

    Melt together the butter and chocolate.

  2. Step 2

    Mix the sugar and the coffee and stir to dissolve.

  3. Step 3

    Lightly whisk the egg and add to the chocolate mixture. Then add the Crème Fraiche and vanilla.

  4. Step 4

    Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the chocolate mixture creating a smooth batter.

  5. Step 5

    Line a baking tray (30x21cm) with baking paper and pour in the batter.

  6. Step 6

    Bake at 175°C for 17-20 minutes or until a skewer comes out cleanly. Set aside to cool.

  7. Step 7. For the crème:

    Combine the cream, glucose, and caster sugar. Bring to the boil.

  8. Step 8

    Add the chocolate and salt. Using a stick blender, create a smooth mass. Cover directly with cling film to avoid a skin and place in the fridge overnight.

  9. Step 9. To assemble:

    Whip the crème gently like whipped cream and set aside.

  10. Step 10

    Cut out 2 LINDT Gold Bunny outline shapes out of the cake slab (side by side) and place one onto the serving platter.

  11. Step 11

    Top with half the crème and the second layer of cake. Then cover the surface of the second layer with the remaining crème. (best use a piping bag for a decorative pattern)

  12. Step 12

    Decorate with little meringues, macarons, Fruit Sensation, and of course Lindt Easter chocolates. Happy Easter!
