Orbit cake

This week i made orbit cake.

This bake was different for me because this  cake is cooked in a bain marie, and i have never done a bain marie before.

This was not a normal cake, it was a sort of a mousse texture cake.

First you get chocolate and butter and melt that over a saucepan of boiling water.

Then you get sugar and eggs in a bowl and disk it up together.

Once the chocolate has melted and has cooled down for a minute or two you disk it into the egg mixture until it has all combined.

Then get a cake tin and pour in the chocolate mixture into it. Then get the cake tin and put it in a bowl of boiling water until it covers the tin about halfway.

Then put it in the oven at 140 degrees on fan and cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes looking at the hour.

It should be a bit wobbly.

Once it has cooked take it out of the tin and put it in the fridge.

Take out of the fridge about 2 hours before you are going to eat it.
