Chocolate Cake 巧克力蛋糕

Chocolate Cake 巧克力蛋糕


Recipe source :  Minnie

I got this recipe from my friend, Minnie years before blogs were started. She apparently got her supplies of great recipes for cakes and cookies from her aunt's cookbooks. And her aunt bought her collection of cookbooks overseas. 

I have been making this chocolate cake ever since. Just a few easy steps to follow which is almost fuss-free baking and the ingredients required  are very basic. That's what I like best!


Do use good quality butter instead of margarine. It really makes a great difference.

This recipe is among the few trusted recipes that I hold dear to my heart. 

Simply scrumptious! 

Ingredients


10 eggs, separate the whites from the yolks
4 oz plain flour
4 oz self-raising flour
2 oz cocoa powder
12 oz castor sugar, divide into two portions
1 1/2 pieces butter ( 375g)


Method


1.  Sift the flour, self-raising flour and cocoa powder together.
2.  Use 6oz of the sugar and cream this with butter until light and creamy. Add egg yolks, one at a time and beat well after each addition. Remove.
3.  Whisk remainder half of sugar with egg whites until stiff.
4.  Fold in the two beaten mixture and add in the sifted flour. 
5.  Pour batter into a greased 9 inches square tin. 
6.  Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for about 35 to 40 minutes. Insert a skewer into the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done.

  4. Hi Doris,

    I totally agree with you that a good quality butter makes a lot of difference in producing a good cake quality. Yours must be very smooth, moist and fragrant.
