Simplicity Cake

I like to bake. Alot. And my kids and husband like to eat what I bake.  Alot
Favourites around my home are Choc Chip cookies, cupcakes and the good old chocolate cake.

We were lucky enough, when we got married, to receive a hand written Recipe book from my sister , with alot of the recipes to meals and sweets that I have been eating since I was a child.
One of the recipes is this 'Simplicity Cake'
Called Simplicity cake because it is just that, a very simple and easy cake to make, but when this cake pictured, was baked and tasted, my husband assured me it was the best cake he had eaten. Hmmm I think he liked it!!

So you may have lots of cake recipes, especially chocolate cake ones, but for a really nice, simple recipe, try this.

Simplicity Cake

1 cup SR Flour
1 cup Sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tpn Vanilla essence
2 tbsp drinking chocolate
 ( can use cocoa but drinking chocolate gives a MUCH better flavour!)
3 tbsp butter

Melt the butter and mix into the other ingredients.
Beath for 3 mins (I use my Mixer and tend to beat until the mixture turns a lighter colourand fluffy)
Pour into a well greased and lined 20cm cake pan and bake for 25-35mins or until cooked through
Ice with buttercream icing ( butter, icing sugar and dash milk)

For variety, try omitting the drinking chocolate and adding grated orange rind for a noice moist orange cake etc.

It doesn't look the best, but oh was it yummy!! I was trying to take a photo while Max screamed for cake!
