Kel’s chocolate cake

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….


Chocolate cake

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

pinch salt


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.

  1. I made this just the other day with a slight variation – mars bars!. I reduced the amount of flour to 1 & 1/4 cups and added two roughly chopped mars bars. Into the oven for the usual time. I iced it with a simple chocolate icing and topped it with mars bar pods….. Very, very rich and oh, so chocolatey!! Yum.
