    Default Perfect choc cake recipe

    I love this recipe, very straight forward and totally delicious, it comes out really light and fluffy, sometimes I 1/4 the ingredients and just make one big muffin


    Ingredients
    6 oz Self-Raising Flour
    2 oz Cocoa
    2 teaspoons of Baking powder
    6 oz Castor Sugar
    6 tablespoons of melted Margarine
    225 ml (8 fluid Oz) Soya-milk (alpro/sweetened is very nice for this !)
    1 teaspoon of Vanilla essence


    (1) Set over at 170 degrees Centigrade
    (2) Grease and stick a circle of paper in the bottom of 2 x 18 cm sandwich-tin cake tins
    (3) Put margarine in a saucepan over a low heat, until it melts
    (4) Put flour, baking powder and cocoa into a bowl, then add the sugar, melted margarine, soya milk and vanilla essence.
    (5) Mix everything into a smooth batter, then pour that into the two cake-tins
    (6) Bake for about 25 minutes, until the middle of the cakes are lightly springy to touch gently
    (7) Flip out the cakes onto a wire-rack. then leave them to cool for a while before removing the paper (and them)

    Either this wallpaper goes, or I do.
