It's my Mother-in-law's birthday this week, and I have made a cake to take with us when we go to see her. The general consensus in the house today was that she would love a chocolate cake (hmmmmm, who were the children really thinking about I wonder), and I realised that I don't have a quick, simple chocolate cake recipe written down anywhere. I decided to record how I made it this time, and here is the recipe:
6 oz soya margarine
6 oz soft light brown sugar
3 oz plain flour
2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
Cream together the soya spread, sugar and cocoa powder.
Add an egg and a tbsp of the flour and mix.
Add the other egg, the rest of the flour and the baking powder and mix.
Scrape the mix into a lined baking tin, I used a 7" square tin.
Bake for about 20 minutes at 180c.
marshmallow fluff, something we all love in our household. I mixed 3 tbsp of fluff with 1 tbsp of soya spread, 3 tbsp icing sugar and 1 tbsp of cocoa powder.
I iced the cake with icing made from icing sugar, water and cocoa and then put dairy-free chocolate beans on top.
