Eggless Chocolate Cake

25 June 2012

I have been looking for a reliable egg-free chocolate cake recipe for a long time and I have finally found one. My mother-in-law is vegetarian and doesn't eat eggs so when she comes round to visit I like to have something I have baked or cooked which she can eat and finally tonight I have found the perfect recipe! Plus - it tastes divine.

170g (6 oz) butter
110g (4 oz sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
250ml milk
2 drops of vanilla extract (optional)
170g (6 oz) plain flour
55g (2 oz) cocoa
2teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Melt the butter the butter, sugar, syrup and milk over a low heat.
Once melted add the flour, cocoa, baking powder and bicarb.
Stir well and pour into a greased tin (large) or two smaller tins.
Cook for 30 minutes on 180 degrees or until cooked.

I used a buttercream icing recipe from Nigella which you can find here.
