Can't go wrong chocolate cake recipe Mary Berry

Recommended Posts

As requested here is the recipe


6.5oz / 190g plain flour

2 level tablespoons cocoa powder

1 level teaspoon baking powder

1 level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

5 oz / 150g caster sugar

2 tablespoons golden syrup

2 eggs beaten

1/4 pint / 150ml salad or corn oil

1/4 pint / 150ml milk


Sieve dry ingredients together in a large bowl


make a well in the centre and add the eggs syrup oil and milk


beat until mixed well and bake in two 8in sandwich tins for 30/40mins at 180 degrees c ( watch the timing I cook mine in my fan oven for 30 mins at about 160 )


cool then ice with chocolate buttercream which I make with melted dark chocolate rather than cocoa because I think that it tastes better.


to fill and ice 4oz butter 2oz melted chocolate or to taste and 8oz of icing sugar.
