My Nanna Mac’s Moist Chocolate Cake

This recipe is very close to my heart, it was passed onto me from my sweet, kind hearted, late Nanna Mac. I have special memories of eating all the yummy food she used to bake in her combustion oven.

The beauty of this recipe is that you combine all the ingredients in the bowl together, it’s easy and delicious!!!

INGREDIENTS
1 1/3 cups Self-Raising flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
1 cup milk
125g butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 eggs lightly beaten

METHOD
Grease and line a 20cm square cake tin (I usually use a round 25cm spring based tin and I double the mixture to achieve cake as I have pictured also cooking time will be about double the time and lower temp 5-10 degrees).
Sift flour, cocoa and soda into bowl. Add sugar, milk, butter, essence and eggs. Beat altogether for 3-5 mins or until combined. Bake in a moderate oven for about 45 minutes, cake is cooked when skewer inserted comes out just clean. Stand cake 5 mins before turning out onto wire rack to cool.
I usually ice with dark chocolate ganache but you can use what ever icing you like or just dust with icing sugar. It all depends on the occasion.
Enjoy!!!

The cake pictured below I made my brother for his birthday. I iced it with ganache curled some chocolate and added some Ferrero rochers.
