Fill a baking tray with the batter to a depth of 1cm. Bake in a preheated oven at 160 °C (320 °F) for 25 minutes until brown.

After cooling, slice the cake into 5mm layers, then cut each of them into 5cm strips.

Thinly spread chocolate sauce on one of the strips, then place another on top. Repeat this process and make four-layer cakes. (Photo #3)
