200g caster sugar

2 large free-range eggs

40 mins
Serves 8

If you’re looking for a gooey chocolate fix, you’ve come to the right place. This cake is perfect for a quick dessert and uses basic ingredients that you probably already have in your store cupboard.

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
Grease a 20cm cake tin with a removable base, grease the tin and line with parchment paper.
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Remove from the heat, add the sugar and eggs and mix well.
Add the flour, cocoa and vanilla and mix until combined.
Pour into the prepared cake tin and place in the oven for 20 minutes.

TOP TIP

The cake won’t rise dramatically but you should be left with a set top and gooey middle.
Serve in slices, with a dusting of icing sugar and a handful of raspberries. You can also add a little whipped cream to top it off.

    This looks delicious but how many gram do I have to use?

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      Which ingredient do you need measurements for? All measurements & ingredients are listed on the right hand side of the recipe. Hope that helps!

  • Katie L.

    This was really simple! Since I had a bigger pan and ended up with a very thin cake, I cut out circles and stacked them to form mini cakes. So glad I tried this recipe!

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      Great idea!

  • ale c.

    Just did it (and we almost ate the entire thing in one seating). Great recipe.. Though it would be great to have the measurements in cups for future recipes, sometimes it’s easier since I don’t own a scale. Thanks!

  • Georgia Lenz

    how many grams are there to a tablespoon?

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      About 15g as far as I know. :)

  • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

    Nope! But if you want more of a rise you can add 1 tsp of baking powder by all means. :)

    • Verónica Carracedo M

      Ok. I’m going to bake this one and the polenta+orange one you have, and then I am going to layer them. Let’s she how it goes! It’s for a birthday cake! Thank you!

  • María Granados

    Soooo the cake is in the oven…smelling good. Impatient.

    While writing the comment I had to take it out. Still impatient. Hopefully I did it right. First time making cake…

    Now, a couple of hours have gone by. I couldn’t post the comment before. My family has liked it, so thank you Donal.

    I will try it tomorrow (the remainings). Looking GOOD. I added chopped chocolate on top 😉

  • María Granados

    Soooo good. I tried it today and it tasted great. Thank you so much!

  • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

    By all means try it with less sugar. It’s an old Swedish recipe that I’ve never messed with but I’m sure it will work just fine. :)

  • angela setiadi

    Can I bake this in small batches? :)

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      Yep but make sure to reduce the cooking time. You’ll have to keep an eye on them!

      • angela setiadi

        Oh okay, thank you! :)

  • Veronika Blažková

    Are you sure the measurements are correct? Didn’t you switch the measurements for flour and caster sugar? I mean the consistency is fine with only 70 grams of flour but It seems to me like too much sugar and I even halved the amount and it was still too sweet (for my taste, but perhaps it’s just me)

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      No they are correct but it’s a really old Swedish recipe and it is extremely sweet. I think that’s why kids love it so much!

  • Joan

    is the cocoa powder a Dutch processed?

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      The one I use usually is! :)
