A number of you asked for the recipe for Alice’s Amazing Chocolate Cake. So, here it is!
- 8 oz butter or margarine
- 8 oz caster sugar
- 4 eggs
- 8 oz self-raising flour
- 3 dessertspoons cocoa powder
Cream the butter and sugar together until you get a pale, fluffy mixture that drops off the spoon easily. Add the eggs and then the flour and cocoa powder.
Divide the mixture between two baking tins, and cook for 30 minutes at Gas Mark 4. Cool the cake then fill and ice with butter icing, made from about 2 dessert spoons of cocoa with about 2oz butter and 4oz icing sugar. Alice’s cake was topped with Maltesers. Enjoy!
ps: If you’re not in the UK, 1 dessertspoon is the equivalent of 2 teaspoons, and caster sugar is superfine sugar.
Next time I should have some photos of what may be my quickest ever lace project. There are over 1,300 of them on Ravelry at the moment. Recognise it?
