Simple Chocolate Cake Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 175 C (350 F). Line a 22cm round tin with baking paper and butter the sides. I used a springform tin.
  2. Melt the butter with the chocolate then mix in the cocoa powder. Set the mixture aside to cool.
  3. Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla together until combined.
  4. Beat the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture.
  5. Stir in half of the flour.
  6. Mix in the sour cream and finally add the rest of the flour as well as the bicarb soda and baking powder. Mix until combined.
  7. Spread the batter into the prepared cake tin. Mine was quite thick at this point, but don't worry! Bake the cake for about 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean or with just a few crumbs.
  8. Let the cake cool before serving with whatever sweet topping you desire! As per usual, I used ganache...
