Milk Chocolate Cake

Method

On the eighth day of Christmas, Stoves gave to me… Milk Chocolate Cake. This decadent cake will certainly cure all your Christmas chocolate cravings.

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Grease the base and sides of two round 20cm cake tins then line the base with baking parchment.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the sugar, butter, eggs, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, vanilla extract and milk until well combined.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly between the two cake tins. Bake for 20 minutes, until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
