    Ingredients

    • 3 eggs
    • the weight of the 3 eggs in dairy free butter
    • The weight of the eggs in caster sugar
    • 1tsp vanilla extract
    • 60g coco powder
    • Self Raising flour added to the coco powder to make the weight of the eggs
    • 1tsp baking powder
    • 250g icing sugar
    • dairy free cream as needed
    • 35g coco powder
    • 145g dairy free spread

    Method

    1. Preheat your oven to 170.C . Weigh your eggs and, in a bowl add the same amount as the eggs, butter and sugar.
    2. Cream your butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. You can do this by hand or use an electric mixer.
    3. Whisk your eggs together in a bowl and gradually add them to your sugar mix.
    4. Sift your coco powder, flour and baking powder together and gradually add them to your butter, sugar and eggs, beating constantly.
    5. When thoroughly mixed and it is the the fluffy texture of buttercream, pour evenly into two greased and lined 18cm, circular tins and bake for 25 minutes or until the center is cooked.
    6. One easy way to test whether it's done is getting a long stick e.g. a kebab stick or a metal cake tester and poking it into the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, it is done. Also if the top of your cake is burning but the middle not done, place some grease-proof paper over the top and carry on cooking the cake.
    7. Whilst your cake is cooking, mix your icing sugar, coco powder and butter together but not your cream.
    8. Combine those ingredients and if it is looking too dry add your cream until you reach your desired consistency.
    9. Let your cakes cool, place some icing on top of one of the cakes, place the other one on top of that and then ice the top cake.
    10. Serve and enjoy!
