How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two nine inch round pans.
  • In a large bowl, sift and combine together the sugar, icing sugar, flour, cocoa, mochaccino powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the eggs, milk, oil and strawberry, mix for 2 minutes on medium speed of mixer. Stir in the jam and boiling water last. Batter will be thin. Pour evenly into the prepared pans.
  • Bake 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake tests done with a toothpick. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Filling:
  • Spread 2 tablespoons of jam evenly(ish) on top of the bottom cake. and place the other cake on top.
  • Icing:
  • Dissolve the mocha hot chocolate in 1-2 teaspoons of hot water in a cup or small bowl.
  • Sift icing sugar and white sugar into a bowl.
  • Add 1 tablespoon jam, softened butter, dissolved mocha hot chocolate, and strawberry essence.
  • Add sufficient water to mix to a spreadable consistency.
  • Add a few drops of food colouring until you get the desired colour.
  • Chill a little if to thin and then spread over cake and refrigerate (if you can withhold the temptation :D )
