IMG_4146

This chocolate cake recipe was given to me by my lovely friend Anne. It is perfect for the Rectangular Stoneware Baker and for making a large cake for a big occasion.  The topping is an adaptation of a couple I have seen floating around Facebook.

So very, very easy, its almost feels like cheating!!

Ingredients for Cake

12oz  Soft Unsalted Butter or Margarine
12oz  Sugar
6 Eggs
9oz Self Raising Flour
3 oz Cocoa

Ingredients for Butter Icing

6oz Icing Sugar
4oz very soft Unsalted Butter/ Marg
1 or 2 tbps Cocoa to taste

Method

  • Preheat Oven 170C/ 150C Fan/ Gas 4
  • Beat the butter/marg and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs slowly and beat.
  • Fold Flour and Cocoa in.
  • Put mixture into Rectangular Baker and smooth top a bit.
  • Cook for 40 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool before attempting icing.

For the icing combine Butter and Icing Sugar in Batter Bowl until fully mixed.  Add cocoa to taste.  Spread over cake using Small Spreader.

    • Thanks for this comment. I have had a look at the post you suggested and am fascinated by the idea of adding milk to buttercream icing – I’ve never done that before! I shall be trying some of your suggestions out soon!
