Chocolate Cake Baking

How To Bake The Chocolate Birthday

Cooking Instructions.

Begin by, greasing the inside of the cake pans with the same fat as you’ll be using in the cake. Now cut 2 circles of parchment paper, 1 for each pan – you can use a pan as a template – and then line the pan bases. Then grease the paper.

Now preheat the oven to 325°F. Next, sift the flour and the baking powder into a large bowl and then add the superfine sugar, margarine or butter and the eggs.

Then with an electric hand mixer or a wooden spoon beat the mixture until well blended.

Next, in a small bowl, mix together the cocoa powder with the boiling water; and then using a metal spoon, fold (slowly stir, lift and with the side of the spoon cut) this into the mixture until it is
incorporated. The cake mixture should now be of a dropping consistency, this means that it should drop easily from a wooden spoon when shaken, if not just add a little tepid water.

Now divide the mixture between the prepared cake pans and level the tops.
