This is the chocolate cake I’ve been eating all my life.
This cake is the first thing I learned to bake and it is still my go-to cake if I’m keen for something easy to make. It is a simple recipe, is not too heavy and tastes great.
I call this my mum’s recipe but after checking with Mum I’ve discovered that she also considers it her mum’s recipe. I’ll have to ask Nan where she got it from.
Anyway – give it a try!
