CAKE

250g butter
150g white chocolate
440g caster sugar shock
250ml milk
225g plain flour
75g s/r flour
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs - lightly beaten

GANACHE

125ml cream
300g white chocolate

preheat oven to moderate - would guess 180 or 160 for fan (I used fan at 160)
grease bottom & sides of DEEP 20cm round cake tin

put chocolate, butter, sugar & milk in pan and slowly heat (without boiling) until smooth - leave to cool approx 15mins

whisk flours into chocolate mix then eggs & vanilla then pour into cake tin

cover with tin foil and bake for approx 1hr

remove foil and leave in cake tin 10mins before turning out onto wire rack to cool

to make the ganache

bring cream to the boil in pan then pour over broken up chocolate, stir with wooden spoon until chocolate melted and then cover & pop in fridge for approx 30minutes - stirring occasionally - before spreading over cooled cake

it can be difficult to judge if this cake is cooked but the crust of the cake should be thick and sugary

will keep for a week but not very likely grin
