Chocolate Fudge Cake

This has to be one of the easiest chocolate cakes to make..honestly (well minus the handmade flowers!)

175g self raising flour
150g caster sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 medium eggs
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
150ml sunflower oil
150ml milk

1. Preheat oven to 180c
2. Line two 7''round tins with greaseproof paper
3. Sieve the flour, cocoa and bicarb into a bowl, add the sugar and mix until combined
4. Make a well in the middle and add the syrup, eggs, milk and oil and mix until smooth
5. Spoon the mixture into the two tins and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes until springy to the touch
6. Leave to cool before placing onto a cooling rack


75g Unsalted butter (at room temp)
175g Icing sugar (sifted)
3 Tablespoons cocoa

( I double the ingredients of the frosting as I don't like to scrimp)


1. Beat the butter until soft
2. Add the icing sugar and beat until well combined
3. Add enough milk until you have a good spreading consistency
4. Sift the cocoa powder into the mixture and mix together until smooth
5. Sandwich the cakes together with half of the frosting then using a palete knife cover the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting...
.......there you have it one light moist chocolate cake



  1. Gosh that looks so good! I have been trying so hard not to bake treats for a while, but succumbed this morning! You can't beat a bit of choccie!

    Have a super day!
