Hg Chocolate Cake


1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup boiling water
185 grams butter
1 1/2 cups castor sugar (superfine sugar)
3 whole eggs
1 1/2 cups flour, self-rising
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla


1. Grease a 24cm springform tin and cover base with vegetable cooking spray. 2. Mix cocoa and boiling water in a cup, cool. 3. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add eggs one at a time and beat well. 4. Sift flours with baking soda and stir into creamed mixture then add milk and vanilla. When well mixed, gradually stir in cocoa mixture. (The cake batter sometimes curdles at this stage, but it won't spoil the finished cake). 5. Pour into prepared tin and bake for 50-60 minutes. 6. Let stand for 5 minutes. Run a knife around edge and release sides of tin. 7. Turn carefully on to a cake cooler and remove base and paper. 8. When cool, ice.
