Yummy Chocolate Cake Recipe

yummy chocolate cake recipe

Who doesn't love chocolate cake?? It's a dream come true so I thought I'd share my go-to, super easy recipe because sharing is caring right?

Ingredients

4oz self-raising flour

4oz butter

4oz sugar

1oz cocoa

2 eggs (lightly beaten)

1 tsp baking powder

Method

  1. Cream together the butter and sugar until it’s pale and fluffy
  2. While still whisking, slowly add in the egg. To prevent the mix from splitting it’s best to use room temperature eggs
  3. When the eggs are fully combined, sift in the flour, cocoa and baking powder. I don’t usually sift flour but with this cake, it helps the cocoa and baking powder spread out more consistently
  4. Fold in the dry ingredients until the mix is smooth, careful not to overwork
  5. Transfer to a lined, 8-inch cake pan and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for 30-35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean
  6. When done, leave to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack

Frosting - Optional

150g butter

300g icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla

Splash of milk

  1. Whisk together until fluffy and spread on top of the cake. Enjoy! xo
