Luscious Chocolate Cake

Incredibly easy, light yet so chocolatey - one bite and you're in Chocolate Heaven!

Ingredients

Method

  • 1.

    Grease and line with baking parchment a square or round springform pan.

  • 2.

    Preheat oven to 180DegC.

  • 3.

    SIFT dry ingredients.

  • 4.

    Combine wet ingredients into a measuring jug/bowl then gradually add to the dry ingredients.

  • 5.

    Beat for two minutes until smooth & runny.

  • 6.

    Bake in square or round springform pan, 20cm greased & lined tin at 180 degrees C for 1 ¼ hours. (75 minutes)

  • 7.

    Leave in tin for 15 mins before turning out.

  • 8.

    Ice and store in an airtight container, or if hot weather, in the fridge.

  • 9.

    Method for Icing:

  • 10.

    Sift cocoa & icing sugar.

  • 11.

    Put butter into hot water until almost melted & mix into icing sugar mixture.

Notes

* 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!

For a hospitalised friend I converted this to a cupcake - it makes around 30. Cook for approx 20 minutes. I doubled the quantity of icing and had enough to ice all 30. She'll be able to keep them in her fridge and have her chocolate cravings met!

Made this using sour cream (as there was a tub in the fridge) and it was delicious. Oh so moist and very light. Thanks for the recipe.

Glad you enjoyed it! Nice idea substituting the sour cream for the soured milk... will have to give it a try. Thanks for your feedback & suggestion ;-)
