Minky's Chocolate Cake

This recipe is courtesy of my favourite Kiwi. She promises it is rich, moist and totally reliable. And she's absolutely right, eh!

Minky's Easy Peasy Fandabbydozy Chocolate Cake Recipe

185g butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
1.5 C sugar
2 C flour
1 C cool tap water
3 eggs
2/3 C Cocoa
  • Put all ingredients in a bowl (room temp butter cut up into cubes).
  • Mix to combine on low speed.
  • Increase speed to max and mix for 3 mins or until the colour changes (goes slightly lighter). It might look curdled but this doesn't matter.
  • Bake in a moderate oven 1.5 hours in a large tin or 1/2 an hour in 2 sandwich tins (greased and lined).

This was lovely. The only hard bit was having to wait the one and half hour cooking time. It was extra torturous as the smell kept wafting in from the kitchen. I served it as pudding, with some chocolate chip ice-cream MacMan brought home in anticipation of this very cake.
