Food Monday ~ Grannymar’s Chocolate Cake

This recipe is very quick and easy using the all-in-one method. I have no recollection of where I got it, but it has always disappeared quickly. Requests to bake it for school teachers’ birthdays, youth fellowship, mother’s union and family gatherings were as regular as night following day. I have at times served it for dessert with Maud’s Pooh Bear Ice Cream.

A word of warning: Don’t tell Elly you are baking it or she will appear from nowhere with a hungry look on her face!

Chocolate Cake
Preheat oven to 190ºC

175gr Butter
175gr Dark brown sugar
4 Eggs beaten
100gr Self Raising Flour
1 level tsp baking powder
1 tsp honey
100gr Drinking Chocolate
1 dessertspoon milk
A few drops vanilla Essence

Whisk together and pour into a well greased Ring Tin and bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool for a few minutes in tin. Turn out and when cold decorate with icing.

Melt over hot water not boiling, stirring all the time, then spoon over the cake.
No licking the bowl unless you are Five!
