Now I know it's January and everyone is 'healthy eating' but there is alwaaaays time for cake. Plus I got a mixer for Christmas and I wanted to use it! I don't like buying cake packs, I really enjoy making them from scratch. My Grandma is a amazing baker so she's always on the other end of the phone to help! I went for a Nigella recipe this time round, as I know her cakes are beaut I had to try it out. Plus I like chocolate.

This cake was literally the moistest cake ever and was so tasty, if I do say so myself.. though I copied a recipe haha. Plus it really wasn't hard either, so it doesn't take that much effort. Well unless you need to mix it yourself, which I didn't for the first time. Ah the ease!!

So anyway, if you're ruining your diet this week this is how you make it..

Ingredients

CAKE
400g Plain Flour
250g Golden Caster Sugar
100g Light Brown Muscovado Sugar
50g Cocoa Powder
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 tsp of Salt
3 Large Eggs
142 ml Sour Cream
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
175g Unsalted Butter - Melted and Cooled
125 ml Corn Oil (I used Rice Bran..)
300ml Chilled Water

FILLING/ICING
175g Dark Chocolate
250g Unsalted Butter
275g Sifted Icing Sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract

Now onto making the cake

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees centigrade
  2. Grease your two 8in cake tins
  3. Mix the flour, sugars, cocoa, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and the salt. (Or chuck into the mixer like me).
  4. In another bowl mix the eggs, sour cream and vanilla until blended. 
  5. Beat together the butter, corn oil and then add the water and beat again.
  6. Add all the dry mix to the butter mix and blend slowly.
  7. Add the egg mix to the bowl and mix until it's nice and smooth.
  8. Distribute the mix evenly between the two tins then pop in the oven for 50-55 minutes.
  9. Leave the cakes the cool for 15 minutes before swapping them onto a rack.
Icing the cake

  1. Melt the dark chocolate and then let it cool while you prep the rest.
  2. Beat the butter until it's creamy.
  3. Then add the sieved icing sugar and mix until it's smooth (it does go smooth, be patient).
  4. Next add the chocolate and vanilla and mix until it's nice and smooth.

Ice cake, fill cake, then eat cake.


This was literally yummmy, and smelt delicious whilst baking. I then took it into work and it didn't last two seconds!
