  3. Bake for around 60 minutes on 180 degrees (you may need to adjust for your oven) then leave to cool in the fridge overnight.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

*** for the topping:

  1. Make ganache by heating double cream, melting chocolate, then combining both.
  2. Leave to cool slightly then add on top of cake before adding Biscoff to decorate.
  3. Chill for a few hours, then add cream and fruit before serving.

ET VOILA.
