Sift together Sasko Self Raising Flour, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa powder, and add to the egg mixture, stirring until combined, then stir in the melted milk chocolate and milk.

Grease a 20cm cake tin and line the base with baking paper. Pour the cake mixture into the cake tin and bake in an oven preheated to 160C, for approx 1 hour or until firm to the touch and a knife inserted comes out clean.Remove the cake from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out on a cooling rack to cool completely.

Meanwhile, prepare the ganache: combine the dark chocolate pieces and cream in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and heat slowly on medium heat until the chocolate has melted. Set aside until cool then spread the sides and top of the cake with the ganache and garnish as you like before serving.
