Bake in square or round springform pan, 20cm greased & lined tin at 180 degrees C for 1 ¼ hours. (75 minutes)
Leave in tin for 15 mins before turning out.
Ice and store in an airtight container, or if hot weather, in the fridge.
Method for Icing:
Sift cocoa & icing sugar.
Put butter into hot water until almost melted & mix into icing sugar mixture.
* to sour milk, add juice of one small lemon (about 1-2Tbls) to pasteurised milk - it will curdle & thicken.
While I sift my dry ingredients, I also add them to my electric mixer and allow the whisk blade to aerate them as well, then add the wet ingredients.
it SHOULD serve 8 to 10 - or 1 or 2 major chocoholics!
