‘World’s Easiest’ Chocolate Cake

200gm Self Raising Flour
50gm Dutch Cocoa powder
250gm Caster Sugar
2 eggs
125g soft Butter
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
150ml Milk
100gm Dark Chocolate chopped into small pieces
Pinch of Salt

Chocolate Icing
1 cup Icing sugar
1/4 cup Dutch Cocoa
4 tbs water – more if needed

  1. Preheat your oven to 180c
  2. Place all of the cake ingredients into a bowl (or your stand mixer) and beat together with electric beaters on a low setting until combined, then increase the speed to high and beat for a further two minutes. Transfer the batter to a lined, round 20cm cake pan, smooth the top and bake for about 40 minutes until a skewer comes out clean. Leave the cake to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, before turning out on a wire rack to cool completely before icing.
  3. To make the icing - Mix together all the icing ingredients - icing sugar, extra dutch cocoa and water, adding the water in slowly until the desired consistency and spread on the cake allowing to drip down the sides. YUM!!!!
  4. *** Tip: For a more adult version, instead of icing the cake, top with whipped cream laced with a Liqueur of your choice and dark chocolate shavings. You could also add Liqueur to the cake batter if you're feeling fancy. You can also serve cut in half and sandwiched with fresh berries and cream... there are so many options the list is endless. This cake will be your go-to recipe I promise!
