130 g Dansukker Organic Cane Sugar Fairtrade
3 eggs
135 g plain flour

Heat the oven to 200°C using top and bottom heat.

Grease a rectangular, loose-bottomed cake tin, approx. 13 x 36 cm.

Melt the butter. Chop the chocolate and stir it into the melted butter. Stir to a smooth paste, add the sugar and beat thoroughly by hand. Add one egg at a time while continuing to stir the mixture.

Combine the flour, cocoa powder and salt in a bowl and fold into the chocolate mixture. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake at the centre of the oven for 10-12 minutes. Leave to cool completely.

Cut the mud cake into triangles so that they look like Christmas trees. Insert a peppermint candy stick into each tree. Decorate the Christmas trees with icing, cream and sprinkles.
