Gooey chocolate cake

  بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Rich chocolate cake!

This chocolate cake is probably the most rich I have ever eaten! It is made without using any chocolate, only cocoa powder. It is definitely not one to be eaten often! However if there is a call for something rich moist and gooey this is the cake for you!
Here is what you will need.


1 cup of plain flour
1 cup of granulated sugar
pinch of salt
2 tbsns of unsweetened cocoa powder
113g butter
1/2 cup of boiling water
1/2 cup of buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 tspn bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tspn vanilla extract

For the icing 

1/4 chopped hazelnuts or nuts of choice
113g butter
2 tbsn unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbspn milk
1/2 tspn vanilla extract
200g icing sugar


1. Sift dry ingredients into bowl
2. Melt butter and add cocoa powder and mix, add water and boil for 30-40 secs.

3. Add the chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix well using a whisk.

4. In a small bowl mix the egg, vanilla extract and buttermilk.
5. Add this to chocolate mixture.

6. Pour into lined baking tin, 6 inch or 7 inch tin would be good for this cake.
7. Put into oven at about 180 degrees Celsius for about 25-30 mins.

8. For frosting melt butter in pan and add cocoa powder and mix for about 30 seconds. Turn off heat.
9. Add to this pan the vanilla extract and milk and icing sugar, then add your chopped nuts, mix well.

10. When cake is cooked leave to set for a few minutes then pour over the frosting. Leave to set for about 20 mins and serve warm or with Vanilla ice cream.

Rich and gooey and chocolate cake.
