As we are having a weeks break from work I decided to make us a lovely chocolate cake, usually made for special occasions, particularly for Keith’s birthday!
Mmmmm……it’s very nice
2 greased and lined sandwich tins
60z white flour (I use organic white spelt)
3 large tbs cocoa ( if you’re in the UK, Morrisons organic is lovely)
60z marg (I use dairy free spread)
6oz caster sugar (I always use unrefined)
3 free range eggs
1tsp baking powder
Walnuts, choc buttons or anything to decorate
Pre-heat oven 200C (gas 6).
With a wooden spoon cream marg and sugar together until creamy, then add one egg at a time with a little flour and mix well. Sift in flour, cocoa, and baking powder iinto bowl and fold in with a metal spoon.
Divide between the two spnge tins and bake for 20-25mins
8oz icing sugar
Cream together in separate bowl and once cake is cool use half to fill the middle and half to smother on the top. Then decorate!
