Just do a sponge cake:-

6oz SR flour
6oz butter/marg
6oz sugar
3 eggs

and add an ounce of cocoa powder (not hot choc)

Easy peasy - when cookd and cooled, fill middle with chocolate buttercream mmmmm

6oz Icing Sugar, sifted
3 oz Butter, softened
Tablespoon or so (to taste) of cocoa powder
Vanilla Essence, a few drops

Cream the butter and sugar until soft and light.
Add the vanilla and cocoa and mix mix mix - add more cocoa if it needs it (taste it)

My mum used to make a chocolate sponge cake just like that but made peppermint butter cream instead, yum

How long do you bake the choc cake for and at what temperature??

MamaG Fri 09-Mar-07 14:07:04

Gas mark 4 for 30-40 mins (until a skewer comes out clean)

cream sugar & butter together first
add eggs
add (sIFTED) flour & cocoa

A friend of mine made the 6663 cake as we call it - used nutella for the topping and it was gorgeous.
