Recipe's preparation

    Cake
  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C.  (My oven runs a bit cool so I cooked on 190°C)

    Grease up 2 x 20cm cake pans.  (I used 2 x rectangle pyrex dishes about 15 x 20cm) OR 1 x large pan.

    Melt butter for 1 min / 60°C / speed 2 or until completely melted.

    Add milk, eggs & vanilla extract.  Mix 3 seconds / speed 3.

    Add remaining cake ingredients - EXCEPT water.  Mix 20 seconds / speed 4.  Mix will be THICK.

    Add boiling water.  Mix 10 seconds / speed 4.  Scrape sides & bottom of bowl - cake was thick, so make sure you get anything that's been stuck on the bowl.

    Mix 10 seconds / speed 4.

    Pour into oiled pans and cook 45 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

    Leave in pan 10 minutes, then carefully turn out and allow to cool completely before icing.

     

  2. Frosting
  3. Add icing sugar, butter, cocoa & vanilla to the bowl.

    Mix 5 seconds / speed 6, or until mixture comes together.

    Add cubed cream cheese and mix speed 7 / 10 - 15 seconds, or until combined and motor takes off!

    Put in butterfly and mix 2 minutes / speed 4.

    Ice cakes as required and decorate!

    Love I have tried a lot of cake and icing recipes and this by far is the best one. I have finally found my "go to" recipe. My mixture was really runny, so I'm not sure what I did wrong. Regardless, it worked out perfectly and looks identical to the picture. Thank-you so much for sharing!

    Delicious! Brought the sugar down to 400g. The cake cracked a lot on the top though so I wonder if it would be better off doing a lower temp or fan baking? I notice another commenter said hers turned out nice and flat!

    Submitted by TST_Girl on 22. March 2016 - 14:30.

    This cake has a lovely texture. Baked in a 23cm square tin and took just over an hour at 180 fan forced. My mixture was quite runny (could pour from the mixing bowl without spatula), thought I had done something wrong. I ran 15g short on cocoa powder. Look forward to baking again with the right amount next time. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hey W400rdy, just realised you've commented twice!  I can't imagine why the cake wouldn't rise by cutting out the sugar?  Are you sure you used both the bi-carb and the baking powder?
