chocolate cake recipe

As per request from Rugshana, here is the chocolate cake recipe. So here goes:

My favourite choc cake recipe with secret(not anymore) ingredient:

  1. Fill a mug halfway with good quality cocoa, top up with boiling water and mix. Set aside.

  2. Mix the following tog: 4 eggs, 1 cup oil, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and then add the cocoa mix above.

  3. Add 2 cups cake flour and 4 level tsp baking powder. Mix.

  4. Stir in 1/2 grated tomato (a medium one is fine)yes, that's the trick to make it moist.

Bake at 180 dg in a well greased ring tin, until knife comes out clear when tested.

When totally cool, ice with choc ganache topping.

Choc Ganache topping:

  1. Heat 300ml cream

  2. Add 400g chocolate and 30g butter.

  3. Stir all together until choc is melted in the cream.

U can wait until ganache is cooled and then drizzle over cake, or cool it half-way.

Serve cake with whipped fresh cream and seasonal berries. Or heat it up and serve with ice-cream and warm ganache.

Enjoy ladies
