Ingredients

  • 125g Butter
  • 125ml sunflower oil ( or any cooking oil)
  • 250ml water
  • 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 300g Flour - plain or cake flour
  • 400g Sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon bi carbonate of soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml natural or plain yogurt
  • For the Icing:
  • 75g Butter - softened
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 cups of icing sugar

Method

    1. In a saucepan, melt together butter, oil, water and cocoa powder.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. Now pour over the wet mixture, and stir well.
    3. Add eggs and yogurt, and stir well again.
    4. Pour mixture into a greased 12x8 inch baking pan or glass pyrex dish. This is a single layer cake, but Im sure you could use two 8" cake tins.

Lovely cake, I added a couple of squares of dark chocolate into the cake mixture and the icing

I made this in two deep 8" greased & lined cake tins. Perfect amount. Otherwise I agree, it is a huge amount of mixture. Cooked for exactly 30 mins in fan oven 165 and it was baked beautifully. A lovely shiny, moist/gooey texture, a bit like a dense brownie (the cake, not a small girl!). Delicious with buttercream filling. Will definitely make this again.

I made this in a big baking dish. After 30 mins, although the outside was cooked, the middle was still liquid. It took 45 mins to cook through and it stuck to the dish. Next time I will use two cake tins lined with baking paper, or maybe two loaf tins. The texture is soft, rather than firm, as I prefer; however definitely superior to a sponge. It's not incredibly chocolately though so in future I would substitute melted choc for some of the oil and also add spices, crystallised ginger or nuts. For the icing I added a squeeze of lemon which gave a better flavour. The cake had to be kept in the fridge as the icing was too sticky at room temperature (hot summer weather).

Best chocolate cake EVER, but it's huge so next time I will halve the ingredients. It's also one of the easiest cakes to make. I followed the recipe exactly and dont think I will change it. Brilliant thankyou.

I have to say this is possibly the best chocolate I have ever made. It is moist and light and the icing is a revelation. It is amazing, please try it.

Try this with Greek style yoghurt instead of cream. It tempers the sweetness and is a massive hit when you add fruit :)

made this it was a huge success, now going to make it with choc chips and think a nice dollop of fresh cream will go down well ;-)
