A rich, soft and gooey Chocolate Cake is just 5 easy steps away.

Outrageous Chocolate Cake

INGREDIENTS

  • 175g – Butter
  • 175g – Caster sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 150g – Self-raising flour
  • 50g – Cocoa
  • 1tsp Baking powder
  • 1tsp Vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

FOR THE SIMPLE CHOCOLATE ICING:

100g of dark chocolate

100g of chopped butter

METHOD

  • Heat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a cake tin with a little extra butter and place a piece of non-stick baking parchment to fit the base of the tin.
  • Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix them together. It’s important not to beat the batter too much – just long enough to make it smooth.
  • Pour or spoon the mixture into the tin, smooth the top and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for about 45-50 minutes. The cake is cooked when it looks well risen and golden; the top should spring back when lightly touched with a fingertip.
  • Let the cake sit in the tin for 5 minutes, then gently run a knife around the edge and turn the cake out onto a wire rack to cool.

For the icing, place the dark chocolate and chopped butter in a heatproof bowl and set over a saucepan of very hot water until melted. Cool for 15 minutes, then spread over the top of the cooled cake.

Then just enjoy!
