- STEP 1
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease and line two 20cm sandwich tins. (don't use springform as the mixture will be very runny)
- STEP 2
Place all of the cake ingredients, except the water, into a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon, or electric whisk, beat the mixture until smooth.
- STEP 3
Add the boiling water to the mixture, a little at a time, until smooth. (The cake mixture will be very liquid.)
- STEP 4
Divide the cake between the sandwich tins and bake for 25–35 minutes.
- STEP 5
Remove the cakes from the oven and allow to cool completely before adding a frosting of your choice, alternatively serve warm with ice-cream
