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
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 table spoons coco
Now for the icing. delicious and dairy free.
250 grams icing sugar – 250 grams margarine – 4 table spoons cocoa
Beat all ingredients until there are no lumps and ice the cake to your delite.
Have fun and enjoy,
Lots of love
