Vegetarian Perfect for birthdays, this is a great recipe for an easy, foolproof chocolate cake. It’s moist and fudgy and will keep well for 4-5 days.
Ingredients For the cake 225g/8oz plain flour 350g/12½oz caster sugar 85g/3oz cocoa powder 1½ teaspoon baking powder 1½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 2 free-range eggs 250ml/9fl oz milk 125ml/4½fl oz vegetable oil 2 teaspoon vanilla extract 250ml/9fl oz boiling water
Method Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease and line two 20cm/8in sandwich tins. For the cake, place all of the cake ingredients, except the boiling water, into a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon, or electric whisk, beat the mixture until smooth and well combined. Add the boiling water to the mixture, a little at a time, until smooth. (The cake mixture will now be very liquid.) Divide the cake batter between the sandwich tins and bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes, or until the top is firm to the touch and a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow to cool completely, still in their tins, before icing. For the chocolate icing, heat the chocolate and cream in a saucepan over a low heat until the chocolate melts. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk the mixture until smooth, glossy and thickened. Set aside to cool for 1-2 hours, or until thick enough to spread over the cake. To assemble the cake, run a round-bladed knife around the inside of the cake tins to loosen the cakes. Carefully remove the cakes from the tins. ✓ Chocolate fudge :- Pic & rec :- @mubina_18 ½ cup butter add in 1 cup sugar and mix well.
