Mazurek is a traditional easter cake originating from Poland. If you like peanut butter and chocolate, you will love this mazurek.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°c, gas mark 6) and grease and line an 8 inch circular cake tin.

  2. Mix together all of the cake ingredients then press firmly into the bottom of your cake tin.

  3. Bake for 10-20 minutes until it starts to turn golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

  4. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C (160°, gas mark 4). Whisk the egg whites to soft peaks, then gradually whisk in the icing sugar until stiff.

  5. Sieve in the cocoa powder, add the ground almonds and raisins and gently fold in.

  6. Spoon the mixture on to the base and spread level. Bake for 20 minutes or until the mixture is set then cool the tin completely.

  7. Beat the peanut butter to soften it before spreading over the cake. Chill for 30 minutes, or until the peanut butter has firmed.

  8. To make the topping, melt the chocolate and cream together stirring until smooth. Pour straight onto the peanut butter layer and gently shake or tap the tin to ensure the topping is level and evenly covered. Chill until the topping is cool and slightly firm.

  9. To decorate, arrange whole or ground almonds to form an ear of corn, using the white icing to form a stalk. Leave to set fully before serving.
