You can never have too many chocolate cake recipes. Like shoes, you need them for every occasion. This chocolate cake is rather like my pair of Nike sneakers - fast and popular.
This recipe makes one layer. Either make two separate layers and sandwich together, or make a double mixture like I did this time and cut in half to sandwich with cream.
1T golden syrup (do not leave this out - gives the cake a super delish factor)
1t baking soda
1t baking powder
3/4 c milk
1 T cocoa
Preheat oven to 180c, grease an 18cm round pan.
Melt butter and golden syrup in a large pan, as this will be your mixing bowl.
Take off heat and measure out other ingredients while cooling. Then stir beaten egg and sugar into the butter mixture. Beat well. Sift in flour, baking powder and cocoa. Add warm milk with baking soda stirred in.
Batter should be quite runny. Bake aprox 30 mins.
I'll let the picture speak for itself.
