2C plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/3 tsp baking soda
120g melted butter
2 beaten eggs
1C coffee (liquid) - I omitted this since it was a kids bday cake ~ still tasted delish!
1 tbsp vanilla essence
Preheat oven 180C
Place dry ingredients in bowl.
Add remaining wet ingredients - I do all the warm ingredients first, i.e. melted butter, coffee, then milk, eggs and essence. That way the mixture doesn't go lumpy. The mixture should be super slushy ; )
Pour in large cake tin, bake about 45mins.
*You can make muffins with this recipe. Also, I tend to only put 1 3/4C sugar instead of 2C cos I add real chocolate icing.
*Chocolate icing is half chocolate, half unsalted butter e.g 125g each and melt. The chocolate the kids like is the Whittaker's 50% cocoa.
