Method of Preparation

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to  180 ° c. Butter your pan.

Step 2:

Put the cocoa powder and 100gms brown sugar into a bowl with a bit of space to spare, and pour in the boiling water. Whisk to mix, then set aside.


Step 3:

Cream the butter and caster sugar together, beating well until pale and fluffy.

Step 4:

While this is going on – or as soon as you stop if you are mixing by hand – stir the flour, baking powder, and baking soda together in another bowl, and set aside for a moment.

Step 5:

Dribble the vanilla essence into the creamed butter and sugar mixing all the while. Drop in the egg, quickly followed by a scoopful of flour mixer and then the second egg.

Step 6:

Keep mixing and mix the rest of the dried ingredients and then finally mix and fold in the cocoa mixture, scraping its bowl well with a spatula.

Step 7:

Divide this batter between the 2 prepared tins and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.

Step 8:

Take the tins out and leave them on a wire rack for 5 – 10 minutes, before turning the cakes out to cool.


Always keep the ingredients at room temperature.
