Super Easy Chocolate Cake

Updated: Nov 19, 2019

I have finally gotten around to post a much requested recipe! A super, duper, easy, yummy chocolate cake recipe. If I were to be completely honest I would have to say I don’t get the obsession with chocolate cake. I mean yeah, it has sugar - which I sadly LOVE but I can’t say it would be my first choice of cakes to bake.

I do get a lot of people asking me for easy chocolate recipes and over the years I have honestly tried a million different kinds, and I have yet to find one that will give me that look every one else gets from eating a chocolate cake (see transformation pictures below)

I chose this cake because it’s a favourite with the parents and the children at the day care, and it's soooooo easy to make that the children at the daycare make it for our birthday parties.


Ingredients

  • 2eggs

  • 1½ cups sugar

  • 2 cups self raising flour

  • 1cup oil

  • 1cup milk

  • ½ cup cocoa

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

  • 1cup hot water

  • 2teaspoons coffee

Ganache

  • 250mls fresh cream

  • 200g dark chocolate


Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c.

  2. Line a round 23cm cake tin with baking paper.

  3. In a large bowl whisk together eggs and sugar, until incorporated, just for a couple of minutes (I just whisk by hand, using an egg beater).

  4. Add oil and milk a little at a time.

  5. Mix in dry ingredients until smooth.

  6. Mix coffee in hot water and stir into cake batter a little at a time.

  7. Pour into cake tin.

  8. Bake for approx 40min.


Ganache

  1. Place chocolate and cream in a saucepan over low heat and mix until chocolate has completely melted and you get a smooth texture.

  2. Pour over cake and serve.

Love,

Nava.
