Chocolate cake

A little while ago, I wrote about chocolate cake with a couple of links to some favourites.
This is the recipe of the other cake I mentioned. It is a family cake recipe belonging to a friend who has kindly let me post it-thank you!

The cake is
  • moist and filling
  •  freezes well
  • versatile-it can be used for a loaf or round cake or muffins. I have served it with cream and strawberries for a very special occasion but usually serve it just as it is.
  • easy-the ingredients go in the food processor, whizz and cook. Great for busy days.
So here is is

3 oz/85g/ 1/3cup margarine (please note the actual measurement in cups appears to be 3/8 cup but might be difficult to gauge!)
2 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa-not hot chocolate
3/4 cup self raising flour
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence


Grease a small loaf tin
Put everything in food processor and beat. (Can easily be put in a bowl and beaten with a wooden spoon).
Cook at Gas mark 4/180 celsius/350  Fahrenheit for 45-60 minutes. Cooked when a fork comes out clean.
