Lois' Chocolate Cake

This is a family favourite that was given to my mum by Lois who was a dear friend of hers. The best thing about this recipe is that you just put it all in together to beat up. It is a really lovely moist chocolate cake that anyone can make because it is so easy to make and it never fails.


4 tablespoons butter
1 cup SR flour
1/4 cup cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
vanilla essence

Melt butter in saucepan. Sift flour and cocoa together into large mixing bowl. Add sugar, eggs, milk and melted butter. Beat on high for 3 minutes. Pour into a greased ring tin and cook 30 - 35 minutes at 350 degrees for gas oven and 370 for electric oven.
Turn onto a wire cooling rack and when cool, frost with chocolate icing.

2 tablespoons cocoa
2 level tablespoons of butter
little milk
little vanilla essence
1-2 cups icing sugar.
