Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cake isn't just any dessert – it's a symbol of comfort, celebration, and pure indulgence! Here is an old favourite I want to share with you.


4 Eggs

200g (1 cup) Caster sugar

210g (1 1/2 cups) Flour

20g (1/4 cup) Cocoa

3 teaspoons Baking powder

Pinch of salt

1/4 cup Strong coffee, cooled down a little

1/4 cup Boiling water, cooled down a little

125ml (1/2 cup) Vegetable oil

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract


Preheat your oven to 180°C, grease two 22cm cake tins, and line them with baking paper.

Add your eggs and sugar to a mixing bowl and whisk till light and fluffy.

Sift your dry ingredients into a seperate bowl, twice.

Combine your water, coffee and oil in a jug.

Add the dry ingredients with the water & oil mix to the egg mix and fold in.

Add the vanilla and stir in.

Pour into your two pans and bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked.

Cool for 10 minutes and then turn over onto a wire rack to cool completely.



500g Icing sugar

80g Unsalted butter, softened

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

4 tablespoons Cocoa

2-3 tablespoons Milk


Add the butter and icing sugar, vanilla and cocoa to a mixing bowl, and whisk till smooth, add milk if needed, but not too much as you want a smooth icing that's not runny.
