1st cake baked in 2011- Moist Chocolate Cake

I had the urge to bake a chocolate cake today. It's Moist Chocolate Cake, mom's recipe that I've had for some time. Here's the recipe...

The Cake:

2 cups Superfine flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
3/4 butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
3 eggs
1 cup water


Combine cocoa powder and water, cool in refrigerator.
Sift flour, bicarbonate soda and baking powder 3 times.
Beat butter in the mixing bowl moderately.
Add sugar and vanilla essense.
Beat until fluffy.
Add eggs gradually.
Add sifted flour into mixture gradually together with cocoa mixture in turns.
Pour mixture into a round cake tin (split into 2) and bake at 350 F for 20-30 minutes.


Chocolate Fudge:
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup hot water
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup butter
1 cup milk
1 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essense
1/2 cup corn flour


Mix egg and sugar, add milk, corn flour, salt, vanilla essense and cocoa powder mix.
Stir on boiling water (double boiler method). When mixture thickens add butter and mix well.
Spread on both cakes before stacking the cakes on top of each other.

Have a try...
