chocolate cake


This isn't what I usually do here , recipes that is .

It's just that I often share cake or slice recipes on facebook
and the girls there seem to like them .

To be honest I am a pretty terrible cook so I can only manage
quick and easy and that is probably why people like them .

At our house this cake is called The Filthy Cake
and that just shows how classy we are at my place.

It is very , very rich but not really cheap to make .

1 packet chocolate cake mix (about 350g) no frills is fine.
2 packets chocolate instant pudding (85g each ) 
4 eggs , 1 cup hot water , 1/2 oil ,1 cup of choc bits

Use an electric mixer to mix the first 5 ingredients for 1 minute only.
Mix the choc bits in with a wooden spoon.

Throw it all into a greased ring tin .
If you don't have a ring tin you can use a small, clean, empty can covered
in baking paper in the centre of a 20cm tin .

Bake at 170c for about 50 minutes.
Let cool completely before turning out.

So rich , this cake doesn't need icing .



If you would like the occasional recipe here
 please just let me know in the comments.

Next time I'll show you some craftiness !
