Another Very Easy Chocolate Cake
« on: May 02, 2013, 12:21:08 pm »
Quick Mix Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting
Converted from AWW :)

The recipe recommends all ingredients be at room temperature, but mine weren't :-))

Ingredients:
185g butter
185g caster sugar (I used 110g brown sugar)
3 eggs
150g SR flour
75g plain flour
30g cocoa
125ml milk

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease and line a 16cm x 26cm lamington tin (I used a 20cm round cake tin).
2. Put all ingredients in TMX and mix for 1 minute/speed 4. Scrape sides of bowl and mix for a further 30 seconds/speed 4 or until smooth.
3. Pour into prepared tin and bake for 30 minutes (mine took about 40). Cool for 5 minutes in tin before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Fudge Frosting:
60g dark cooking chocolate
15g butter
225g icing sugar
2 tbsp milk, approximately

Melt chocolate and butter for 1 minute/60 degrees or until smooth. Add icing sugar, set TMX to speed 2 and add dashes of milk through lid until frosting is smooth and spreadable. Spread over cake and decorate as desired :)

Thanks ladies ;D :-*

Judy, this one is for some friends who have been in the UK for nearly 5 weeks.... they get home tomorrow so I just dropped the cake off at their house. They will find it on the kitchen bench as soon as they get in :D
Good idea making a welcome home cake for DB though, I should do that when he comes down in a few weeks ;)
I think he likes his meals at home... he eats the same thing every day up at university so it must be a shock for his tastebuds when he has proper homecooked meals and something different every night :-))

A lovely gesture for your friends Amy.  They will be pleased I'm sure.

DB may wonder what's come over you if you decorate a cake like that for him  :D but it would be worth his reaction for you to give it a go.
