A classic sponge cake made into a chocolate sponge cake. This is completely fail-safe. Use a good quality cocoa powder (not drinking chocolate) for best results!
This same basic recipe can be used to make butterfly cakes, fairy cakes, birthday cakes and any other kind of sponge recipe. Try different things to adapt it and make your own cakes. If you find a good way to use this recipe, please make suggestions by commenting!
