New, improved “I still want to do it myself” Chocolate Cake

I am not quite sure how this happened, but the Allergy Brothers initiated Cake Friday.  This means I bake them a cake every Friday!  This has meant that I have had the opportunity to tweak my chocolate cake recipe (the original is here; you can also see that the Allergy Brothers’ cake decorating skills are improving!).  It is still a very forgiving recipe that is easy to make.

200g gram flour

40g chestnut flour

3 tsp baking powder

200g sugar

25g cocoa powder

9 tbsp sunflower oil

1 tsp vanilla essence

340ml water

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Line cake tin with greaseproof paper.
  3. Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. Add oil and vanilla essence to the dry mixture.
  5. Gradually add water and mix well until a smooth and runny consistency.
  6. Pour cake batter into the lined tin.
  7. Bake on middle shelf of the oven for 20 minutes.
  8. Check the cake with a skewer, if it comes out wet then bake for a further 10 minutes.
