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.
1½ cups sugar
2 cups self raising flour
½ cup cocoa
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1cup hot water
250mls fresh cream
200g dark chocolate
Preheat the oven to 180c.
Line a round 23cm cake tin with baking paper.
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).
Add oil and milk a little at a time.
Mix in dry ingredients until smooth.
Mix coffee in hot water and stir into cake batter a little at a time.
Pour into cake tin.
Bake for approx 40min.
Place chocolate and cream in a saucepan over low heat and mix until chocolate has completely melted and you get a smooth texture.
Pour over cake and serve.
PS - I love hearing from you! Let me know how it went and feel free to spread the word/passion/love, the more the merrier!
