Best chocolate cake recipe!

This week, I’ve had two important birthdays; my boyfriends and my mums. For birthdays like this, I try to go the extra mile and make something for them, usually cake!

I tried to make a moist chocolate cake this year for my boyfriend, and it actually turned out really well! So I thought I’d share it, recipe below:


240g of butter

350g of sugar, I used brown

3 eggs

350ml milk, I used semi-skimmed

300g of self raising flour

6 big tablespoons of cocoa powder

A pinch of salt


  1. Have the oven set to 180 C and grease two circular cake tins.
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa and salt into one bowl. Get another bowl for the wet ingredients.
  3. In the second bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until combined. (Mine looked a little brown because of the sugar I used, but that’s ok). Then beat the eggs in one at a time.
  4. Put a little of the flour mixture into the wet ingredients bowl and mix together until incorporated, then add a splash of the milk. Repeat this process until all ingredients are mixed well in one bowl.
  5. Pour the mixture into the cake tins.
  6. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
  7. Allow to cool before putting frosting/icing on

It seems like a bit of a pain to make with all the different bowls, but its honestly the best chocolate cake I have made!
