Ingredients
  • 60 g butter or butter alternative I use Pure or Vitalite
  • 135 g caster sugar
  • 1 large egg or 1tbsp flax, 3 tbsp water
  • 150 g self raising flour I used Free From Fairy Flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 200 ml milk or milk alternative I use soya for it's creamy taste
For the liquid
  • 250 ml water
  • 200 g ¬†soft light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ¬†cocoa powder
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl cream the butter (or dairy free spread) and caster sugar until light.

  2. Add beaten egg (or flax egg) and milk (or milk alternative) combine

  3. Sift in flour, baking powder and cocoa
  4. Top Tip: I always sift from a greater height, this allows air particles to attach to the flour grains, thus encouraging a more impressive rise in the bake.
  5. Fold in dry sifted ingredients quickly
  6. Pour into an oven proof dish (big enough to hold a litre of water) and put to one side.
  7. to make the sauce mix a little of the water with the cocoa to make a paste to reduce chance of lumps
  8. Add the rest of the water and sugar and pour over the cake mixture.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C/350F/Gas 4 for 30-35mins
  10. Serve with custard and revel in your genius!
