  • 85g cocoa powder

  • 2 eggs

  • 115g all purpose flour

  • 200g Sugar

  • 2 tsp Baking Soda

  • 1 tsp Baking Powder

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 240ml milk

  • 100g oil

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 4oz Choc Drops

  • 175ml Whipping Cream


  1. Preheat oven to 175C and grease and flour two 6 inch cake pans. (I used a 9 inch bundt tin)
  2. In a bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients.
  3. Create a well in the centre and add all the rest of the ingredientse. Mix well until combined. Mix once again (the batter will be very runny).
  4. Pour into greased pans and bake in the middle rack in the oven for approximately 45 minutes or until a skewer comes out just clean.
  5. Cool on a wire rack.

To make the frosting, heat the whipping cream in a pan to a simmer (do NOT boil). Add to it chocolate chips and stir to combine until chips have melted. Refrigerate until cool and whip until stiff peaks form.

Cream will not whip if boiled or if not completely cold before whipping.
