Chocolate Cake

Super-light and fluffy delicious chocolate cake :) 


- 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


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

170g room temp unsalted butter

150g icing sugar


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.


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.
