Default Easy Peasy chocolate cake

Ingredients:

8oz butter (Stork)
8oz sugar (normal granulated)
4 eggs
7oz self raising flour (I use gluten free flour as I am coeliac and it works amazing)
1oz cocoa powder (I like bourneville but it's up to you)
1 teaspoon baking powder

Recipe:
Turn oven on to 180 c
1) Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and whisk (electric hand which is better) till all the butter is mixed in and covered in sugar.
2) Add the eggs, flour, baking powder and cocoa powder and whisk together till all ingredients are bound.

Grease 2 shallow cake tins with stork (use a bit of grease proof paper wrapped around fingers). Make sure the whole tins are covered.

3) Separate the mixture between the two tins. Don't push it all the way to the sides. Dollop it in the middle the. Gently tame it to the sides. Push it gently to the sides but don't let it completely touch the sides.

Place in the oven for 25 minutes. Check it after 15-20 (nearer 20). Stick a knife in the middle. If it comes out completely clean, it is done. Shouldn't be done by this time but check in case. When you close the oven (I know it sounds stupid but) don't slam it, close it gently. The sudden change in pressure and temp makes the cake flatten. After 5 more minutes check it again and the knife should be clean. If not keep checking after 2 minutes. Don't slam the door.

Leave it to cool for 5 minutes before transferring it a wire rack.

Icing:

Mash with a fork icing sugar, cocoa powder and flora butter together in a bowl. It does take a while but it does come together after a while. If you need to add a couple of drops (literally drops) of cold water from the tap. If you need more icing literally just put more icing sugar in. This also makes it thicker should thickness be what you are after. Mix it all together until there are no lumps then spread on the top of both cakes. Place one cake on top of the other but don't push it down. Just let it sink slowly.

Et voila. You have an amazing tasting chocolate cake.
