Bake Sale Recipe
Texas Chocolate Cake

by Karen Larke
(Hereford, UK)

This cake is always incredibly moist & keeps well (that's if there's any left). It makes a welcome addition to any bake sale or charity fundraiser.

Grease & line a 7" x 11" tin & preheat oven to 190 C (fan oven about 170 - 180 c.

This bake sale recipe is measured in American Cups.

1 - Combine 2 cups of caster sugar, 2 cups of Self-Raising flour & half a teaspoon of salt in a large mixing bowl.

2 - Boil 1 cup of water together with 1 cup of margarine & 4 tablespoons of plain Cocoa powder (not drinking chocolate).

3 - Once melted add to the dry ingredients and begin to mix by hand, with a metal spoon is best.

4 - Add to this mixture half a cup of plain Greek yoghurt, 2 large eggs lightly beaten & 1 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda - mix thoroughly until completely combined.

5 - Pour into a 7"x11" lined baking tin tip carefully to even out and then bake in the oven at 190 degrees C for 30 minutes.

6 - Leave to cool for about 5 minutes then turn out onto a rack and once cooled completely dust lightly with icing sugar.

(this cake is so moist it doesn't need filling but can also be eaten warm with cream like a pudding, and keeps for days and so its very versatile.

Thanks Karen. A great recipe for hungry Texas cowboys and plenty of other 'chocoholics' we reckon
