1.5 cup sweet chocolate powder 2.5 cups of all purpose flour 2 teaspoons of baking powder 1.5 cups of sugar 3 large eggs 1.5 cup of butter 1.5 cup of half and half (half milk and half cream comes in packets: when not available use normal milk and cream) salt to taste
Mix chocolate powder, flour and baking powder together and sieve into a big bowl. Beat the butter and sugar well into a cream. Add one by one eggs into it and keep on beating. Gradually add the dry flour mix into the butter mixture and while adding keep on beating. At the same time add the half and half to keep the mixture moist. Once everything is added and the salt and mix well. Bake in a greased baking tray for 20 minutes in 150 gas mark and poke a stick to check if it is done well. If nothing sticky comes out with the stick the cake is done. Turn the cake onto a wire rack and let it cool. You can either serve this with cream beaten with icing sugar or covered with normal chocolate butter icing.
