Easy chocolate cake recipe

simple chocolate cake

This is a one bowl, super easy, kid-friendly chocolate cake. It isn’t glam and won’t impress baking experts but for morning tea or a fast dessert you can’t beat it. If you can turn on an oven you can make this chocolate cake, which is great served with ice cream, cream or even just a sprinkling of icing sugar on top.

Making it in a ring baking tin makes it look a little bit more fancy than using a round tin. You could fill the berries to serve if you want to up the glam factor.

It is from a book called Quick Mix Cakes by AWW.


125g melted butter

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cocoa powder [Dutch for preference]

1 cup self-raising flour

3/4 cup caster sugar

dash best vanilla

Preheat oven to 170C, and grease a ring pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Place everything in bowl of electric mixer and beat until smooth and mixture has changed colour.

Pour into pan, bake 35-ish minutes/until a skewer comes out clean.

Leave in tin 5 minutes then remove to wire rack to cool.

      Whenever I’m searching for baking recipes I zero in on the words ‘easy’, ‘fast’ or ‘one bowl’.
