Delicious Chocolate Cake

I was delighted that my daughter wanted to make her birthday cake so we tried Jamie Oliver’s Easy Chocolate Cake recipe with a slight adaptation. It takes less than an hour to make!!!



175g sugar
175g butter
100g flour
2 eggs
Tsp vanilla essence
Tblsp cocoa or 150g plain/milk chocolate.
Tsp baking powder

First thing to do is either make a liquid paste with your cocoa using a little hot water. Or melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water. I did the latter.
Preheat oven at 180 degrees.
Whisk the sugar and butter together. Sift in flour and mix well. Add eggs, vanilla essence, baking powder and melted chocolate or paste. Whisk until mixture is light a fluffy.

Pour into a buttered cake tin and bake for approximately 40 minutes.

Serve with vanilla ice cream or on it’s own.

We put ready made chocolate icing over the top and decorated it for my daughter’s birthday.
