About this recipe: This chocolate sponge cake may be simple, but tastes delicious. It is great for all occasions and for an afternoon snack!

Serves: 8 

  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 125g butter
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 25g cocoa powder (or more if desired)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Either put grease-proof paper into two sandwich cake tins or grease them with butter.
  2. To start, place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Stir the mixture until it's fully blended and the lumps are gone. Divide the mixture evenly between the two tins.
  3. Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the middle pops back up within 3 seconds if you poke it with your finger.
  4. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes then serve with your choice of topping or filling. I recommend thick sweet cream. Enjoy!
