Chocolate Cake

Super-light and fluffy delicious chocolate cake :) 

Ingredients


- 200g butter room temp


200g brown sugar


2 eggs


1 tsp vanilla essence


280g cake flour


1 Tbsp Baking Powder


1/4 tsp salt


45g cocoa powder


350ml milk


ICING:


120g chocolate I used half 70% Lindt and half milk choc


170g room temp unsalted butter


150g icing sugar


Directions


1. Pre-heat your oven to 180° then Spray & Cook 2 standard sized cake tins. I also pop a round piece of baking paper at the bottom of each tin.


2. With an electric mixer cream the butter & sugar together for about 3 mins, then add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla essence. Mix well.


3. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt & cocoa together before adding them to your wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, beat until combined. Do not overbeat.


4. Evenly distribute the cake batter into the two cake pans & bake for ±28 mins depending on your oven.


5. Once done leave them in the pans for a few mins to cool before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.


ICING DIRECTIONS:


1. In a bowl beat the butter & icing sugar together until smooth.


2. In a separate bowl melt the chocolate either over a pot of simmering water or in the microwave a little bit at a time. Allow to cool slightly.


3. Add the melted chocolate into the butter mixture & start mixing it immediately with an electric mixer, beat until glossy & smooth.


4. Place one half of the cake onto a plate & then add a layer of icing.


5. Place the 2nd half of the cake onto the iced middle & start spreading the remainder of the icing all around the sides and top of the cake.
