Chocolate Cake Recipe

Chocolate Cake, yummy!!!


  • 125 g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 100 g self-rising flour
  • 25 g cocoa powder
  • 40 g butter 
  • Vanilla extract

For icing;

  • 375 g plain dark chocolate
  • 250 g butter
  • 100 g icing sugar


  1. In a waterproof bowl, heat sugar and eggs over simmering water.
  2. Then whisk the mixture until it is very think and foamy. This will take about 5-10 minutes. The whisk should leave a trail when you lift it.
  3. Sift in the cocoa powder and flour, and slowly and carefully fold it into the mixture.
  4. Then mix in melted butter and vanilla and mix it all well.
  5. Pour the mixture into a base-lined cake tin and bake in a preheated oven, 180˚C/ 350˚F/ Gas Mark 4 for 25 minutes.
  6. Put a toothpick or skewer in the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, it is ready.
  7. Now to make the icing, melt butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl over simmering water.
  8.  Beat in the icing sugar until it is pale and fluffy.
  9. When the mixture cools down, chill it for 1 hour. By then it should have thickened.
  10. Horizontally slice the cake in half and put the icing on it.
  11. Then sandwich the two layers together.
  12. Using the remaining icing, cover the top and sides with a flat knife.
  13. Then enjoy 😉


This isn’t my recipe but is a really good recipe I found. Enjoy.
