At the garden project this week we have decided to stay in the warm and make our very own Christmas cake! To bake our chocolate cake – follow our recipe below:
50g cocoa powder
6 tbsp boiling water
4 tbsp milk
175g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
100g butter (softened)
300g caster sugar
Preheat the oven to 180C and line your baking tin with baking paper
Put the cocoa powder and boiling water into a large bowl and mix well to make a paste.
Add the remaining ingredients and beat again until combined.
Pour the cake mixture into your baking tin.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until well risen and shrinking away from the sides of the tin.
