  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) vegetable oil

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour10min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Combine and sift together 2 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, cocoa, salt, bicarb soda and baking powder. In a small bowl, blend together eggs, oil, 1 cup milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla; combine with dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly and then stir in one cup cold coffee (may use instant coffee). Batter will be very thin but it bakes into a rich, dark, moist cake.
  3. Pour into a greased 20x30cm pan. Bake for about 40 minutes.
  4. To Make Whipped Cream icing: Combine 1/4 cup flour and 1 cup milk, adding milk slowly and beating until smooth. Set over moderate heat and stir constantly until thickened. Set aside to chill completely. Combine 1 1/2 cups icing sugar with butter and margarine, beating until light and fluffy; stir in well cooled flour-milk mixture and beat at high speed until thick and creamy. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and beat until thoroughly combined. Spread icing over cooled cake. Enjoy!
