Grannys famous chocolate cake

So again this week i just had an itch to bake. The whole week just revolved around me really, and i mean really wanting to bake. So when thursday afternoon came and i had finished my math test and had no homework it was the perfect opportunity 🙂 YAY finally. So i didn’t have to think about it, i just knew i wanted to make a simple 2 layer chocolate cake! Yummie in my tummie 🙂


And what better cake to make then my grannies famous chocolate cake, adored by my family and friends.  Easy to make and even easier to eat, trust me i know.


First beat the egg whites until stiff with 1 teaspoon baking powder.


Then in a sperate bowl beat the yolks and boiling water until light and fluffy.

Sift the dry ingredients and add it to the egg yolk.


Then add oil and beat very well :0


Fold in whites and mix by hand








And all thats left is to grease a baking tin and bake the for approximately 30 minutes on 180 degrees.

Then take it out and leave it 2 cool before icing.

Oh and how could i forget the best, and in my opinion the most important step? you have to lick the bowl!


Now to stick the 2 layers together, Yay the fun part, so you have to put a thick layer jam (i prefer strawberry) on both sides. And then take one side and put it on top of the other. Waala
