Easy Chocolate Cake

A simple but slighty indulgent chocolate cake to celebrate 1500 facebook fans. A super exciting milestone for little ole me! HP1B9017 Ingredients

  • 200g unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 200 g soft brown sugar sugar
  • 4 eggs at room temperature
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 50g cocoa powder sifted
  • 50ml milk/sour cream
  • 50 g chocolate finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. vanilla essence

HP1B9020 Preparation Preheat the oven to 350F /180C and line an 8 inch round tin with baking paper ( I used a loaf tin) . In a medium bowl mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda. In the bowl of a mixer cream together butter and sugar and salt until nice and fluffy. Stop the mixer once or twice to scrape the bottom and sides of the mixer bowl. Butter_Cake-1 Add the eggs to the creamed mixture one at a time. If you rush it, the mixture might separate so take your time. Remember to scrape your bowl.   Butter_Cake-5When all the eggs are in, add 1/2 the flour and half the milk or sour cream and gently fold them into the mixture. Then add the other half of the flour and milk, folding that in gently too. Finally fold in the chocolate chip, being careful not to overmix. Pour the mix into the prepared baking tin and place in the oven until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. I start at about 45 minutes baking time. HP1B9019
