All in One Chocolate Cake

All in One Choccy Cake Recipe (as borrowed from Here )

225g/8oz plain flour (though I did it with bread flour)
350g/12.5oz caster sugar (I did it with normal gran)
85g/3oz cocoa powder
1.5 tsp baking powder
1.5 tsp bicarb
2 free range eggs
250ml/9 floz milk
125ml/4.5 floz veg oil
2 tsp vanilla extract (I did it with insides of two fresh pods)
250ml/9 floz boiling water

For choc ganache icing
200g/7oz plain chocolate (have done it with milk/ a mix all seems to work fine)
200ml/7 floz double cream
tiny pinch of salt (my addition)


1. Pour all ingredients except boiling water into a bowl and mix together.
2. Add water slowly until the mix is glossy.
3. Pour into greased 8" sandwich tins (though first time I did this in bun trays and made 2 x dozen buns)
4. Put in pre-heated oven 180c/350f/gas4 (though on our fan it seems to be 160c)
5. Bake for 30/40 mins (test by sticking a knife in, if it comes out clean you're good to go)
6. Make icing - bung chocolate and cream in a pan. Heat and stir till chocolate melts completely.
7. Remove from heat and whisk till smooth (or don't bother Smile )
8. Allow to cool until thick enough to spread (2-3 hours room at room temp so I'd bung it in the fridge.)
9. Assemble and eat.

In reality, I'd do the ganache icing first. It can be cooling down in the fridge while you sort everything else.
