Get in your kitchen and start baking this delicious chocolate cake! All you need are some few ingredients and you can get going.
225 g self raising flour, 225 g caster sugar, 225 g soft margarine
25 g cocoa powder, 4 eggs, 1 tsp baking powder
Combine the caster sugar and the soft margarine together until you have a fluffy mixture. Add the eggs, give it a whisk then add the rest of the ingredients one by one. At the end you should have an airy mixture which you divide into two tins (grease and flour them beforehand so that the cake mix won’t stick to the tins). Bake for about 20 to 25 min on 170° C.
Whilst the cake is in the oven you can get on with the filling of the cake. Today I chose to do a chocolate fudge icing. You need:
86 g butter, 60 ml milk, 34 g cocoa powder, 2 tsp vanilla essence, 300 g icing sugar
Place the butter and milk in a small saucepan and heat it until the butter has melted. Pour it into a bowl and start blending in the cocoa powder and vanilla essence. Then mix in the icing sugar until you have a smooth mixture. Place the bowl in the fridge until it is just stiff enough to be piped on the cake.
By now the cakes should be out off the often and cooling down. As soon as it has gone cold you can start filling and decorating it.
Take about half off the chocolate fudge icing and spread it on one cake then place the other on to it. Fill the rest off the icing in to a piping bag and start decoration the top off your chocolate cake.
Now I saw that my mum had some raspberries left so I went and placed them between the icing. Raspberries are my fave and it just goes so well together with chocolate.
So there you go a lovely chocolate cake ready to be devoured by you and perhaps your family or friends. It’s such an easy recipe and doesn’t take up a lot of time too so it’s perfect for any occasion weather your in a rush, have a graden party or just wanna enjoy a rich and delicious chocolate cake!
