A beautiful and decadent dessert. The best clue to this cake being nearly done is that you will start to smell the aroma of chocolate filling your house!

Serves: 24 

  • 125g butter
  • 90g cooking chocolate
  • 2 cups (500g) white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (250ml) water
  • 2 1/4 cups plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons bicarb soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) milk
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease and flour one 20x30cm pan or two 20cm round pans.
  2. In a small pan melt the butter with the chocolate. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Cream together the sugar and the eggs until light in colour. Add the chocolate mixture to the eggs and temper mixture by beating well (so you don't end up with scrambled eggs!) Add 1 cup boiled water (still warm) and blend well. Mixture will be very liquid.
  4. Mix together the flour, bicarb soda and salt. Add this mixture to the chocolate mixture and blend well.
  5. Mix together the vinegar and the milk and stir into the chocolate batter. Pour into prepared pan(s).
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
