Chocolate Fudge Cake

I make a chocolate cake every week of some variation (gotta feed a hungry teenager). This one was declared one of the best yet. It is also one of the easiest cakes to make.


180g/6 1/2 oz butter, melted

175g/6 oz self raising flour

1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda

3 tablespoons cocoa powder

100g/3 1/2 oz sugar

2 tablespoons golden syrup

2 eggs

150ml/5 fl oz milk


Filling

100g/3 1/2 oz butter

220g/8 oz icing sugar

40g/1 1/2 oz cocoa powder

A little milk

Line two 20cm/8" cake tins.

In a bowl mix the cocoa powder, flour, bicarbonate soda and sugar.

Now add in the golden syrup, eggs, melted butter and milk.
