Ingredients

  • 225g/8oz plain flour
  • 350g/12½oz caster sugar
  • 85g/3oz cocoa powder
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 250ml/9fl oz milk
  • 125ml/4½fl oz vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250ml/9fl oz boiling water

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  2. Grease and line a 20cm/8in tin.

  3. Place all of the cake ingredients, except the boiling water, into a large mixing bow and beat the mixture until smooth and well combined.

  4. Add the boiling water to the mixture, a little at a time, until smooth. (The cake mixture will now be very liquid.)

  5. Pour the liquid into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 45 minutes, or until the top is firm to the touch and a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

  6. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool completely, still in the tin, before turning out.

  7. Decorate as desired.
