Chocolate Buttermilk Layer Cake


2 and 1/2 cups plain flour

2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp salt

1 cup sunflower oil

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup cocoa

2 and 1/4 cups caster sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup boiling water


Line two 9 x 1&1/2" sandwich tins with greased greaseproof paper.

Sift together flour, bicarb and salt. In a large bowl mix together oil, buttermilk, cocoa, sugar, eggs and vanilla.

Add flour mixture and boiling water alternately to the cocoa mixture. Mix only until combined - don't over mix. The batter will be very thin. Pour into prepared tins.

Bake in preheated oven at 150-160C for 35 minutes or until the cake springs back when pressed. Cool in tins for 10 minutes then transfer to racks.

Sandwich together with chocolate icing.
