House sitting in Redcliffe recently I decided to enter a chocolate cake into the cookery section of the Redcliffe Agricultural, Horticultural and Industrial Society Show. So pleased that the cake won second prize. The recipe is listed below:
NEVER FAIL CHOC CAKE
BUTTER – 90g
4 TBS COCOA
2 CUP SUGAR
1 CUP MILK
2 CUP SR FLOUR
Heat oven to 180degC (160degC fan bake). Grease a 20cm round cake tin and line the base with nonstick baking paper.
Melt butter, add cocoa and stir until smooth. Add other ingredients in the above order. Beat for 2 mins.
Bake approx 1 hour in mod oven
The cake was covered with a dark chocolate ganache made with evaporated milk [not cream] - still very yummy and more economic!
