Chocolate Cake

Tried this one last week and dusted it with icing sugar rather than icing it, mine was a little dry but I baked with wholemeal as I am trying to change all my baking over to wholemeal. Next time I will try icing it and think it will be great. 


1 3/4 cups Plain Flour
1 tsp Bicarb soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp Cocoa
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp golden Syrup
2 eggs
2/3 cup of oil
2/3 cup of milk


Preheat oven to 160
Put all dry ingredients into the bowl and then all wet ingredients and mix well.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes and leave to sit in tin for a few minutes before turning out to cool.

Make an indulgent icing with 185g chocolate gently melted in a pan with 2 to 3 tbsp of cream, let this cool a little and then pour it over the cake. The kids loved this Chocolate cake as it was and demolished most of it. Thats actually the reason it didn't get iced, anxious taste testers arrived home from School before I'd had a chance!

    Yummm!!! Will have to try this recipe. I find adding a little extra liquid helps when using wholemeal flour. Love the icing sugar dusting idea! Hugs Michelle xx
