by The Drew


  • 5 Tablespoons Cocoa powder
  • 60 Grams Flour

  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla sugar (optional)
  • 2 Eggs (must be from happy hens)

  • 7 Inches Baking tin
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Set your oven to 180c /350f.

    Step 2

    Grease your tin, here we've used butter.

    Step 3

    Dust with 1 Tbsp cocoa.

    Step 4

    Melt your butter.

    Step 5

    Add the salt, doing it at this stage helps the salt disperse in the mix.

    Step 6

    Take the pan off the heat and pour in your sugar and vanilla sugar.

    Step 7

    Ads remaining cocoa powder.

    Step 8

    Mix it thoroughly.

    Step 9

    Add your eggs. If you use eggs from battery hens you don't have permission to use this recipe!

    Step 10


    Step 11

    It will look like this.

    Step 12

    Add your flour and fold it into the mix.

    Step 13

    This is the folding technique.

    Step 14

    Pour mix into your tin.

    Step 15


    Step 16

    For 25 minutes.

    Step 17

    Remove from the oven and let it cool in the tin for 10-15 minutes. No need to test this, we're not making a sponge cake i.e. its meant to be loose in the middle.

    Step 18

    Invert onto a plate and serve. The centre will be soft and very unxious. Goes great with custard, ice-cream, whipped cream, marshmallows. Enjoy!
