- 375g plain flour

- 55g caster sugar

- 1/2tsp salt

- 55g cold unsalted butter

- 1tbsp active dry yeast

- 120ml warm water

- 115g room temperature unsalted butter

- ½ melted bar of Wickedly Welsh Chocolate (flavour optional)



- Cube mould (required for a perfect cube shape)

- Cling film

- Rolling pin

- Mixing bowl



  1. Combine the flour, sugar and salt in a sizable mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate container, dissolve the active dry yeast in warm water and let it sit for five minutes.
  3. Slice the cold butter into cubes and add 55g to the flour mixture. Mix the butter with your hands until it resembles rough sand.
  4. Gradually incorporate the yeast mixture into the flour until it forms a dough. Knead the dough for approximately 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  5. Cover the dough with cling film and let it rest for an hour until it doubles in size.
  6. Roll out the dough into a large rectangle.
  7. Spread some of the room temperature butter over two-thirds of the dough.
  8. Fold the unbuttered third over the middle third, then fold the other end over that (similar to folding a letter).
  9. Roll out the dough again into a large rectangle.
  10. Repeat steps 7 and 8.
  11. Fully cover the dough with cling film and refrigerate overnight.
  12. The next day, cut the dough into squares slightly smaller than the bottom of the cube mould, leaving room to expand; stack the squares until a cube is formed. After stacking halfway, carefully pipe your melted chocolate filling into the centre of the cube.
  13. Bake at 190°C for approximately 20 minutes.
  14. Add your desired toppings and enjoy!
