This moist and fudge chocolate Tim Tam layer cake could not be any more delicious. The cake starts with 2 layers of Tim Tam filled chocolate cake, which are sandwiched together with a rich yet simple chocolate icing. The cake is then topped with more chocolate icing, and of course decorated with even more Tim Tams.
The chocolate cake itself is incredibly easy. It’s all made in one bowl, and not a stand mixer in sight. This batter is on the thinner side, but that’s what makes this cake so perfectly fudgy.
