“If you give me chocolate cake, I’ll be your friend forever.”


1 2/3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
100 g (3 1/2 oz) melted butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F)

2. Grease 20cm springform pan, line with greaseproof baking paper.

3. Put all ingredients into a processor and mix.

4. Pour into baking pan.

5. Bake for 50 minutes, time measured the same way in other parts of the world or do you have to convert according to time zones?
(Centre should spring back, and skewer comes out clean)

6. Cool, and ice… (frost whatever ya call it..)

100 g (3 1/2 oz) butter
250 g (8.81849 oz or 1 cup) icing sugar…(powdered sugar)
1/3 cup of cocoa
Milk to mix
1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat butter and dry ingredients until combined, add milk, teaspoon by teaspoon, until you have a thickish, soft, spreadable, delectable icing. Use 1/3 to fill sliced cake, and the rest as icing. Refrigerate till set.

*OK I can’t claim this recipe, but this is the stock standard chocolate cake that my wife bakes, and it is an awesome chocolate cake, rich, dark and handsome… opps moist..
