It had been so long since I made a no fuss, simple chocolate cake. I found this recipe on Pinterest – I decided I wasn’t just going to use it to save lots of lovely things and never do any of it, but instead to really try and make some of the things I pinned – this recipe comes from this lovely blog. I just love her pictures and the video is very cute and cool. I highly recommend a visit.
Swedish Chocolate Cake
10 tbsp (5oz / 135g) salted butter
1/2 cup (2 oz / 55g ) cocoa powder
1 3/4 cup (12.5 oz / 350g) sugar + 2 tsp vanilla sugar (or vanilla extract)
1 cup (4.6 oz / 130g) flour
Preheat you oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C), butter and flour a 6″ to 8″ cake tin
In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Pour into the grease cake tin and bake for 30-45 minutes (should be 30-35 minutes for an 8″ pan, 35-40 for a 7″ pan or 40-45 for a 6″ pan).
Doesn’t get any easier than that!
Be careful with how long you bake it for. I baked mine for a tad too long and there wasn’t enough overall gooeyness.
Let the cake cool in it’s pan, then run a dull knife around the inside edge of the pan to loosen the cake. Turn the cake out onto a wire rack. Dust with powdered sugar.
We ate it warm with vanilla ice cream. De.li.ci.ous!
