DONNA LATTER’S CHOCOLATE CAKE
(this is a separate section and very popular every year. Donna Latter was a CWA Member)
1 ¾ cups SR flour
1 ¼ cups caster sugar
½ teaspoon bicarbonate soda
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons cocoa
Place all ingredients into a bowl and beat well until the chocolate mixture changes colour and all the ingredients are combined. A processor can be used if desired.
Grease and line a 20CM tin (round or square).
Pour mixture into the tin.Bang the tin slightly to even out the mixture.
Cook in a moderate oven for about 1 hour or until cake is cooked
TIP: If when touched in the centre, the cake comes away from the sides of the tin it is ready. When cool, ice on top with chocolate icing.
