A Cake With Personality.

There are few cakes with as much character as chocolate.

Dark, brooding and mysterious in its sinful excess.... its a cake that fascinates and amazes me every single time I bake it.

This cake is a no-fuss, one bowl cake.


Just dump in the ingredients in the correct order, whip them into submission and bake the hell out of it!

Want the recipe?

Here goes!

You'll need :

1/2 Cup of Butter at room temperature
1 Egg
1/2 Cup Granulated sugar 
1/2 Cup Yoghurt
1/2 Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 + 1/2 Cup Flour
3/4 cups Cocoa
1/4 Baking Soda
1/2 Baking Powder

What to do next?

Combine Butter, Sugar, Eggs and Vanilla. 
Whip till creamy.
Add the Cocoa.
Mix till even.

While you're doing this, put the oven on pre-heat at 160 C  :)

Once you're satisfied with this mixture, add in the milk and yoghurt.
Then, very slowly ( so that the flour doesn't fly up into your face!), Sift the Flour and Baking Powder + Baking Soda into it.

Tada! Batter ready!

Pour into a Baking tin and put into the oven at 160 C for 60 minutes.

At around 55 mins, open the oven and check if done. (Insert a skewer - I use spaghetti! - into the centre to see if its done!)

If its done, enjoy!
