Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 150 FF or 160 non FF.

    Prepare small baking tin by greasing and lining base.

    Place butter, water and cocoa into Closed lid 

    Melt 3 minutes/55/speed 1, gradually increase to speed 2.5 as it melts.

    Add sugar, flour, bi-carb, vanilla and buttermilk.

    Mix on speed 3 for 15 seconds. Scrape down.

    Increase speed to 4 and add eggs, one at a time. 

    Mix for a few seconds to make sure all is incorporated. 

    Pour into prepared pans. Bake for 45 minutes.

    Leave in tin to cool slightly before turning out onto a wire rack.

     

    Ice with ganache, plain chocolate or buttercream icing.

    I generally leave it plain, cut into squares and freeze the squares.

    Straight out of the freezer into the microwave for 30 seconds.

    Serve with cream, ice cream, ganache and berry coulis. People love it!

  • Very easy to make but my cake

    Submitted by roxygirl720 on 25. October 2016 - 07:16.

    Very easy to make but my cake didn't turn out.  Was very heavy and had to cook for an extra 20 mins.  And even then wasn't right.  May have been due to pan being too small.  Not sure. I'd love to give this another try with a much larger pan.

  • It depends what sort of cocoa

    Submitted by The Bush Gourmand on 25. September 2015 - 19:34.

    It depends what sort of cocoa you use. I've never experienced the metallic taste. Bi-carb will react with the acidic nature of cocoa to create more rise in the cake. Some cocoas - eg Cadbury's have been treated to make them less acidic.

  • Quick, easy and yum! I only

    Submitted by BigBelly on 23. August 2015 - 19:44.

    Quick, easy and yum! I only put in 230g butter and made up the balance with macadamia oil. Used 200g caster sugar but still sweet enough. Because this mixture is very wet it needs a large surface area. My scanpan tray is 18 x 32 cm and I thought it would be too big so used a smaller tray but had enough left over to fill 6 muffin cases. A very economical recipe that goes a long way.

    I made this recipe again as muffins. Both these and my earlier cake had a metallic taste. For this reason I query why bi-carb is included as this has upset the pH of the mixture (hence metallic after taste).  Will NOT include it if I make these again.

    Simply beautiful! So moist. I used a large square tin and it made a nice, high slab cake. Perfect with chocolate buttercream. I'm certainly popular in my house at the moment. This will definitely be my go to chocolate cake. Thanks for sharing. Love

    I use the small Scanpan baking dish - 27cm x 19 cm. I haven't tried it in anything else.
