There's one on the BBC good food website called fudgy dark chocolate cake it's really nice. I'll try find a link smile

Worth testing it, even if you don't use it for the birthday smile

I often make a Chocolate Yoghurt Cake which is moist and light - kids love it and beg me to make it fortnightly. The yoghurt makes it very moist, and allows you to cut down on butter.

You will need 2 cups of plain flour, 2/3 cups of cocoa, 1.5 tsp of bakind soda, 1/2 cup of softened unsalted butter (113g), 1.5 cups of caster sugar, 2 eggs, 1.5 cups of plain yoghurt, and 1 tsp of vanilla.

Preheat oven to 175.

Sift flour and cocoa
Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs into creamed sugar/butter one at a time (fully incorporating each egg prior to adding the next one)
Add in dry ingredients, yoghurt and baking soda to butter/sugar mixing gently 1/3 at a time
Mix in vanilla
Put in prepared springform pan and bake for 45-55 minutes.
Col for 10 minutes before inverting onto a rack to cool completely.

Just to say thank you again Mominatrix. What a fab cake. He loved it, and so did the rest of us! I made it in two sponge tins and then iced in between as well as on top.
