125gms butter
1 ¾ cups SR flour
1 ¼ cups caster sugar
½ teaspoon bicarbonate soda
2 eggs
1 cup milk

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.
