    About this recipe: There's enough mixture here to make a kids birthday cake or a huge cake. Trust me, baking cakes is NOT easy for me :)

    Serves: 30 

    • 225g (8oz) self-raising flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 225g (8oz) caster sugar
    • 225g (8oz) margarine
    • 5 large free range eggs
    • few drops vanilla essence
    • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
    2. The method is just as simple. Sieve the flour and baking powder together, add the sugar, margarine and eggs, and vanilla essence, whisk, mix or blend in a processor. Easy peasy.
    3. Continue, scraping down the sides occasionally, until you have a well-combined mixture that will drop off a spoon when tapped. If it seems a little stodgy, add a tiny drop of milk.
    4. Spoon half the mix into a separate container or bowl. In one of the bowls, fold in your cocoa until well mixed.
    5. Grease and lightly flour your roasting tray and start spooning the different mixes in one at a time and use a chopstick (or similar) to make swirly patterns in the mix as you go!
    6. Stick it in the oven until a skewer inserted near the centre comes out clean, about 35 minutes and voila!


    This is great to use as a base for childrens' party cake. I'm using it to make a giant surfboard (am making 2 lots).
