Easy and Delicious Chocolate Cake Recipe

Rich Chocolate Cake

Talk to any home cook and they will try to convince you that they have the best chocolate cake recipe going around.  Whether it be an easy melt and mix cake, a one bowl marvel or a special ingredient or two – everyone has their own opinions as to what makes an easy and delicious chocolate cake recipe.

After much testing (yep, it’s a hard life!) we’ve found what may just be the best easy and delicious chocolate cake recipe you have ever tried.  The special ingredient in this recipe is raspberry jam which give this cake a lovely moist texture.  Why not try it and bake it yourself this weekend – we’d love to know what you think.

You will need:

125g of butter – softened

1/2 cup of caster sugar

1/3 cup of icing sugar – sifted

2 eggs

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/4 cup of raspberry jam

1 1/4 cups of self raising flour

1/2 cup of cocoa powder

1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda

1 cup of milk

For the Chocolate Buttercream

50g of dark chocolate

25g of butter

3 teaspoons of cream

1/4 cup of icing sugar – sifted

Let’s put it together!

Line a 20cm square cake tin with baking paper and preheat your oven to 180 degrees.

Sift the self raising flour, bicarb soda and cocoa together into a small bowl and set aside until needed.

Place the softened butter and both of the sugars into your electric mixer bowl and beat until the mixture turns pale and is light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time and beat well between each addition.

Add the vanilla extract and jam and beat until well combined.

Add the sifted flour mixture and the milk alternatively to your mixing bow – keep it beating on a low speed.  Once all of the ingredients have been added, continue to mix for a further 30 seconds or until all the ingredients have combined.

Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake tin and place in the oven to bake for 40 minutes or until cooked through when tested with a skewer.

Carefully remove the cooked cake from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for approximately 20 minutes before carefully turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Once your cake has completely cooled, you can then make the chocolate buttercream.

Place all of the ingredients for the Chocolate Buttercream into a small saucepan and stir over a low heat until the ingredients have all combined and the icing is smooth and glossy.

Spread the buttercream over the top of the cooled cake using a spatula or butter knife.

Enjoy!
