Is this the best chocolate cake ever? It's definitely one of the most unusual, but the combination of potato and sour cream works their magic with the dark chocolate to create a gorgeous texture and taste. I've added this recipe to my permanent chocolate cake collection, and we think you might too! 

Chocolate Potato Cake

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cold mashed potato
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 125g butter, chopped
  • 2/3 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 125g dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 and 1/4 cups self raising flour
  • cocoa powder for dusting
  • cream and berries to serve

Method

  1. Grease a 20cm ring pan; line base and side with baking paper.
  2. Combine potato and sour cream in a small bowl; mix well.
  3. Beat butter and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add cooled chocolate; beat until combined.
  4. Fold potato mixture and sifted flour into chocolate mixture. Spread into prepared pan.
  5. Cook in a moderate oven, 180 degrees celsius, for about 45 mins, or until cooked when tested. Stand cake in pan for 5 mins; turn onto wire rack and cool.

We love this Middle Eastern staple grain so much that we stock it in our pantry essentials range! This delicious vegetarian recipe can be served as a side or a main, and made ahead to be assembled and warmed through just before serving. The soft caramelised aubergines combined with creamy yoghurt and spiced burghul makes for a satisfying meal that has fast become one of my family's favourites.
