To make 1-Egg Chocolate Cake, you will need:

  • 50g NZ Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Golden Syrup
  • 1 free range egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cocoa
  • 1 cup plain flour

  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 180ml Blue Top Milk

Chocolate Icing

  • 2 cups Icing Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Mainland Buttersoft
  • 2 Tablespoons Water (approximately)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  • 1 Tablespoon Cocoa (or 2 Tbsp for a richer icing)

Directions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Grease a 20cm round cake tin and line base with baking paper. Or choose a ring cake tin as shown (but reduce cooking time by 10 minutes).
  3. Melt butter and syrup in a small saucepan.
  4. Pour melted ingredients into a small bowl.
  5. Add egg and sugar, beat well.
  6. Sift cocoa, flour and baking powder together.
  7. Fold sifted ingredients and essence into egg mixture.
  8. Dissolve baking soda in the milk.
  9. Fold this into the egg mixture.
  10. Pour your cake mix into chosen pan and bake for 30 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched.
  11. Leave cake in the tin fo five minutes before turning out onto wire rack
  12. Serve plain as shown, or dust with Icing Sugar. For a true choc fix make Chocolate Icing: sift icing sugar and cocoa in a bowl, add butter, add sufficient water to mix to a spreadable consistency, flavour with essence.
