Chocolate Cake

  • 175g (6oz) plain flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 150g (5oz) golden caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon black treacle
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml (5fl oz) vegetable oil
  • 150ml (5fl oz) milk
  • apricot, rasperry or strawberry jam, cream or butter icing to finish.

Preheat the oven to 160*C/325*F/Gas3 and grease 2x18cm (7in) cake tins.

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a food processor and blend.

Add liquid ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Pour the mixture into the tins and bake for 45mins (or until done).

Personally I always double the mixture and put them in circular tins, it doesn't matter if you do this. Just allow a longer cooking time if using double the mixture.

The End
