My aunt gave me this recipe when I was about 12. I have been making it ever since. Simple and beautiful.
Ingredients : What you need
2 cups sugar
2 heap cups self raising flour
4 dessert spoons cocoa
250 g melted butter
Method : How to make
Beat all ingredients except butter.
When mixed add the butter
Pour into a prepared cake tin and bake at 180 degrees for about 1 hour or until a skewer comes out ALMOST clean when you insert it into the middle of the cake.
My extra tip: At the melted butter stage I added a whole lot of homemade orange jam, then iced the cake with Lint orange dark chocolate ganache ( very easy…just melt chocolate and some butter in a heavy bottom saucepan over low heat until its melted and glossy)
