Chelsea’s Favourite Chocolate Cake

Unbelievably easy - throw all of the ingredients together and bake. We love this one!
Make it dairy free by following our alternative suggestions.
  • Difficulty Easy
  • Prep time 10 mins
  • Cooking time 1 hrs
  • Serves
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 mix - don't be alarmed the first time you make it.

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!
