So a few of you may seen today on facebook that I had a few cake orders to do and with the left over cake batter and icing, I made the tribe a chocolate tray bake. (for those of you whom didn't see, the pictures are at the bottom of this blog- pure food porn) I promised to post the recipe on here in the evening.... henceforth here I am, you're welcome!
As always with me, pure laziness as I cannot be faffed measuring out and weighing ingredients, its all cup measures I use. Just a standard brew cup (not a mug) and use the same cup throughout. I promise though as easy as the recipe is, it'll make the nicest moist chocolatey sponge you've ever tasted!
1 1/2 cups of plain flour
2/3 cup of cocoa powder
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine softened
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of milk
all my baking is done using a mixer
Cream together butter and sugar,
Mix eggs, vanilla and milk together in a jug and add to the butter mix (and mix)
Add cocoa powder, salt and baking powder (and mix)
Then finally add the flour.
Once thoroughly mixed (it should be pourable consistency) you can pour it into your desired baking trays depending on what you're using this mix for.
As a guideline its will make either ONE of the following...
A 25 x 25 lined cake tray. Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes @180
20 cupcakes. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes @180
15 muffins. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes @180
2lb loaf tin. Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes @180
250g block of butter
500g icing sugar
4 tbsp. milk
100g dark chocolate melted
1/2 cup cocoa
Soften butter in mixing bowl
Add Icing sugar
Add melted chocolate and mix thoroughly
