For many years I thought rich chocolate cake was the best thing on earth. Till I found this recipe.

The secret to achieving the best moist chocolate cake recipe is in the liquid. Too much and your cake turns soggy. Too little liquid, your cake turns out dry. And bake it at the right temperature. So here goes, it's quick and easy to prepare.

200 gm butter

310 gm castor sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 cup milk

Sift together:
240 gm plain flour

80 gm cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/2 tsp salt


  1. Cream butter and sugar together till light & fluffy. Add eggs one at a time & beat well.
  2. Add vanilla essence into the milk.
  3. Stir alternately milk mixture & sifted dry ingredient into the creamed mixture.
  4. Use a 20 cm square cake tin. Grease the sides with a little butter & line the base with greaseproof paper. Pour in the cake mixture into the cake tin.
  5. Bake in preheated oven at 175ÂșC for 55-60 minutes.
  6. Leave cake to cool for 30minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

Quick and Easy Tips:
Insert a skewer into the cake to check if it is cooked. The cake is cooked if the skewer comes out clean. If the skewer comes out gooey, then you'll need to bake it till the skewer comes out clean.
