Chocolate Cake


This is my friend Sinead's easiest ever Chocolate Cake.  She is the one who brought us the Lemonade Scones. Not even I can make a mistake with this and I cant bake to save my life, much to Cully's disgust.


  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  • Stick all ingredients in, whizz, bang!
  • Whizz like a mad thing!
  • Bake in lined cake tin.
  • Takes about an hour.
  • Fill with whipped cream and top with chocolate ganache (equal quanties of cream and chocolate)
  • Indulge!!
