This cake is as simple and tasty as it gets. It is full of flavour, moist and fudgy. The preparation of this cake is not time-consuming seeing that it takes less than 30 minutes.
Step 1: Ingredients
85g Cocoa powder
350g Table sugar
22g Baking powder
22g Baking soda
125ml Sunflower oil
250ml Boiling water
30g Vanilla extract
More materials needed:
Whisk, or wooden spoon
Step 2: Getting Started
Before you start mixing all of your ingredients;
Make sure to preheat the oven to 180ºC
Grease a sandwich tin which will be used later
TIP: If you do not have grease available you can either use oil, or butter to grease the sandwich tin
Step 3: Mixing Ingredients
Pour all of the ingredients, other than the boiling water, into a sizable bowl. The order of the ingredients does not matter. However, I personally prefer starting with the dry ingredients such as flour and sugar rather than the milk and eggs.
Tip: Mesure all the ingredients before mixing them together rather than adding one ingredient and then having to go back and measure the next ingredient.
Step 4: Whisking Ingredients
The next step after you poured all of the ingredients together is to whisk it using either a whisker, or wooden spoon depending on your preference.
While whisking the cake slowly add the boiling water to the mixture until it is smooth and free of clumps.
Tip: Boil the water while you add the other ingredients, so that when you add it to the batter it is still warm.
Step 5: Pour Mixture in Sandwich Tin
After the cake mixture is completely mixed and smooth pour the batter in the already greased sandwich tin.
Tip: While pouring the batter move the bowl in circle motions, so that the batter is evenly spread around.
Step 6: Baking
Keep the oven on 180ºC
Bake the batter for 30 to 40 minutes
Tip: For testing if the cake is ready stick a fork in the center. If there is any batter coming on the fork the cake is not ready.
Step 7: Let Cake Cool
After the cake is finished baking take it out of the oven and let it cool off completely while it is in the sandwich ti
Step 8: Finished Cake
When the cake is cooled off you can take it out of the sandwich tin and enjoy!
Tip: Seeing that the cake is nicely moist, you do not have to add any sauce to make it taste good.
