This is a chocolate cake without very much chocolate in it for a more subtle, lighter flavour. It's a very old recipe.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (200g) white sugar
  • 85g margarine
  • 1 cup (250ml) sour milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
