Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake

This chocolate sponge sandwich cake really is delicious and is my favourite. The recipe is my Grandma Kay's and we were very happy to find it the other day. I remember my family also look at, GPS Drawing and friends used to fight over pieces of this cake!

It's especially tasty when you can get a really good quality dark chocolate spread to use in the butter cream topping.

The recipe uses bicarbonate of soda instead of eggs. So it can also be eaten by vegans, or those avoiding eggs. You can also use gluten-free flour if you wish.

(If you love your butter then you can substitute butter for the margarine.)

8 oz. (225g) Self-Raising flour
4 oz (115g) sugar
3 oz (85g) margarine
teaspoon salt
1 oz (28g) cocoa powder (not drinking chocolate)
10 tablespoons (150ml) hot look at, RC Helicopter Kits water
1 tablespoon (15ml) black treacle (or molasses)
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

- Dissolve treacle in the hot also look at, Preserving Flowers with Glycerine water
- Mix all DRY ingredients
- Add bicarbonate of soda to treacle water checkout, Pencil Drawing and stir QUICKLY into dry ingredients
- Stir in melted margarine, it will make a slack batter (not stiff, but not runny you could pour it).

In our house try, Photo Collage this cake never lasted long enough to test its keeping very long, but it does keep 2-3 days if you can resist it!
