Super simple fudgy goodness! Perfect for days when you you’re too lazy to bake but crave a good chocolate cake. No fancy icing,just a simple ganache, no electric mixer needed. Best mixed with a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula.
1 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter(melted)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1+1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups dark chocolate (with nuts), roughly broken
1 cup cream
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Mix together flour, baking soda and cocoa powder.
In another bowl combine melted butter with brown sugar. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Add in the flour mixture all at once. Combine till there are no lumps. Add the warm water and mix.
Pour into a greased baking tin and bake for 25-30 minutes.
While the cake is baking, on a double boiler, melt the chocolate with the cream and butter till smooth.
Once the cake it cooked and cooled, spread the ganache on it and garnish with fresh berries.
