This is the easiest chocolate cake recipe… I’ve been making this since I was about 8 or 9 I think.
The recipe calls for dessertspoon measurement but they’re pretty hard to find these days – roughly 2 tablespoons should be about right if you don’t have dessertspoons….
1 & 1/2 cups S.R flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 & 1/2 dessertspoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda
Put all ingredients into a mixer and beat until well combined. Pour into a lined cake tin. Bake in a pre-heated oven (150 degrees C) for one hour.
When cooled, top with chocolate icing and sprinkles (if you want to!)
To make this into a simple chocolate pudding cake, use only 1 cup of flour.
