My Mum’s easy chocolate cake recipe is super simple to prepare. Everything goes in one bowl, then you walk away and make a cup of tea while the electric beaters whip the cake together for you. Finish with a simple chocolate icing and some sprinkles to make it fancy. I have fond memories of eating a slice of this cake as an after-school treat. Heaven forbid I brought some to school. I would be hounded by classmates wanting some too!
You will need: a 20cm (8 in) round cake tin
