Chocolate Fudge Cake

This is a recipe for a delicious chocolate fudge cake which is rich and moist, and need I say delicious.  Putting it here partly for myself so I can remember what I did, because I have had many unsuccessful attempts in the past so I made this one up and it worked a treat.

Grease and line 2 normal sandwich tins. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

110g butter
                                               
150g caster sugar      
                              
2 small eggs    
                                          
65g melted chocolate   
                                         
150g plain flour
 
1 level tsp soda
 
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
 
125ml yoghurt approx

for the chocolate fudge

200ml cream
200g dark chocolate

Cream the butter and sugar then beat in the eggs one by one.

fold in the flour and soda.

Add enough yoghurt to give a nice dropping consistency.

Put half in each cake tin, bake for 30 mins.

for the ganache melt the chocolate and butter and mix in the cream. 

Use some of this to sandwich the cakes together and cover the entire thing with the rest.  Grate chocolate on top if you like.
