Easy Chocolate Cake...

The week before last I baked a cake!... not exactly earth shattering but it's a big deal for someone who had only ever really baked from a packet before.

I don't know what has possessed me but I am enjoying baking and want to build my skills...

I was on the hunt for a really EASY recipe and it needed to match the ingredients I had here in my panty...or rather...lack of ingredients.

All of the recipes I was finding in my cookbooks required cooking chocolate and or baking powder...neither of which I had. This has since been rectified...

I needed something I could cook with flour (self raising or plain), sugar (caster, raw, white or brown), cocoa, butter, eggs, vanilla essence, milk...

I headed to the web and found this one...Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe...

I gave it a go and it worked (Yay) and it tasted yummy (double Yay).

If you're a novice like me, give it a go, you'll be very pleased with yourself!..



  1. Oh - so wish I had this for an after dinner treat - looks delicious!!

    1. I hope you cook it tomorrow so you have an after dinner treat... :) Jx
