Chocolate slab cake

Chocolate slab cake


Dry ingredients

2 cups of sugar
2 cups of cake flour
2 tsp of baking powder
1&1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup of cocoa powder

Wet ingredients
2 tsps of granulated coffee stirred into a cup of hot water
2 eggs
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of oil
2 tsp vanilla essence


Preheat oven to 180°C

In a large bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients . Add the milk to the coffee mixture and stir .

Next, Add all the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, whisk until well combined.

Pour batter in a greased baking tin . Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely.

Decorate with fresh whipped cream , shavings of milk chocolate and berries or caramel and cream ... Or melted chocolate and a few tablespoons of cream stirred together to make a thick chocolate ganache.

I used a rectangle baking tin size 30-33cm. You may divide batter into two round standard baking tins as well and bake for 20-25 minutes. For the big oven trays, simply double the ingredients.
