Ingredients

    1 Tbsp instant coffee granules
    ¾ cup water
    2 cups Chelsea White Sugar
    1¾ cups plain flour
    ¾ cup cocoa powder
    2 tsp vanilla essence
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    ½ tsp salt
    2 eggs
    1¼ cups milk (or Rice/Soya Milk)
    ½ cup sunflower or soya oil

Method

    Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 23-25cm cake tin with baking paper.

    Dissolve the coffee granules in water, then place all ingredients into a food processor and process until well combined and smooth. Pour the mixture into the cake tin. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour 20 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack and when completely cold, ice with either Chelsea Rich Chocolate Icing Sugar or make your favourite with Chelsea Icing Sugar.

    Note: This is a very runny mixture - don't be alarmed the first time you make it.

I made this cake based on all the reviews and it was easy, moist and very tasty. I omitted the coffee and it only needed 55mins in my oven. Highly recommended.

Nicest chocolate cake - I left out 1 c sugar as I don't like my cake too sweet. I used 3 eggs as 2 of them were small. I also liked how easy this cake was to make.

I decided 2 cups of sugar was too much so I only did 1 and the cake was still absolutely amazing. Super simple and easy. If you want too add a little something to make it less boring I recommend making a caramel sauce. Yum!

Lovely moist cake - I made it into cupcakes & it was perfect because they stayed flat & were perfect for icing. It made about 60! Beautiful, moist & possibly the easiest recipe I have ever made!
