Poppy’s Chocolate Cake

When I was at primary school I had an after school carer who was, for the time, apparently was quite ‘alternative’ – in that she liked lentils and wholemeal ingredients. None of that would be too out of the ordinary nowadays.

Anyway she had this really simple recipe for a chocolate cake that just required putting everything into the one bowl in one go and mixing. It tastes great and is a very easy one for little kids.

1 cup raw sugar
1 cup self raising wholemeal flour
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons cocoa
6ozs melted butter
pinch of salt
pinch of baking powder

Heat the oven to 180C. Grease a tin.
Then simply mix all together, bake at 180C for 40-50 minutes.

Ice with melted dark chocolate, serve with double cream and fresh raspberries or strawberries.

If you can’t get self-rasing flour (like in the USA) then add an additional 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt
