This recipe comes courtesy of one of my customers. One of the reasons I love being a consultant is all the recipe sharing. This would have to be the easiest chocolate cake recipe out there, done in under a minute and can be made as a big cake or cupcakes. Happy Valentines Day, keep sharing the Thermie Love. Enjoy Eb x
- 300g self raising flour
- 4 eggs
- 50g cocoa or cacao powder
- 170g olive oil (mild flavour)
- 400g caster sugar (note I make it with 300g)
- 200g milk
- Pinch salt
- Tsp of vanilla bean or extract
Place all ingredients into the bowl and mix on Speed 5 for 20 seconds. Scrape down the sides and mix for a further 30 seconds.
Preheat oven to 180°C and line either a large 26cm cake tin or 2 x 20cm cake.
Pour cake mix into pan(s) and allow to rest while your oven reaches temperature. Bake for 35-40 minutes (depending on your oven). Cake is cooked when a skewer comes out clean.
Allow to cool then top with your favourite icing.
