    Serves: 16 

    • 175g plain flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 75g cocoa powder
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
    • 300g caster sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 250ml milk

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:25min cooling  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line a bun tray with paper or foil cases. Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk; beat well. Fill the paper cups 3/4's full.
    3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Ice with your favourite icing when cool.
