  • ¼ cup butter

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 beaten egg

  • ½ cup light milk

  • Sauce

  • ½ cup soft brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon drinking choc or milo

  • 1 ¼ cups boiling water


  • 1.

    Set oven to 180oC

  • 2.

    Sift flour, baking powder and choc

  • 3.

    Cream butter & sugar then add the egg

  • 4.

    Stir in flour mix and milk alternatively, and then pour into dish

  • 5.

    Mix the dry sauce ingredients and sprinkle over cake mix then gently pour in boiling water

Serve with ice cream and cream or custard, this recipe is the best on a cold wintery night!
