Helen's Chocolate Cake

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.
