This is one of the best cake recipes we have, it's not the most simple but with experience produces wonderful results. It's probably not a good recipe for a first time cake baker, try cup cakes or simple sponge first. If you want a brilliant video version with easy to follow instructions visit the video page.
There are hundreds of different chocolate cake recipes, we present one of our favorites here, however if you did want to find others can we recommend the Good Housekeeping resource, it contains some of the best and most interesting cake recipes.
Preparation time: 15 Minutes
Cooking time: 30-40 Minutes
110g of butter (or margarine)
This recipe is not simple but if you follow the instructions the results should be good; looks professional, but tastes home made, it should be moist and so will last for a few days. Follow the instructions exactly!

"A brilliant Cake but I tried substituting the margarine with butter and it was very rich"!
" I couldn't get on with the flourless cake recipe, is there something simple I've missed."

Your Comments Do Matter
"I appreciate your attempts to 'convert' traditional meat recipes into vegetarian alternatives but it kind of makes us veggies feel a bit like second class consumers of your information. I mean why not have a great pumpkin casserole recipe that could be converted for meat eaters. Sam"
