See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I got a recipe from a friend in the UK. I was hoping maybe there is a Mom in here that could "Americanize" it for me lol. Measurements need converted (I'm hopeless at converting), but then there are some ingredients that I'm pretty sure are called something else here. Thanks!!!
Death By Chocolate Cake
8 oz. self-rising flour
2 T. Cocoa Powder
1 T. Golden Syrup (Not really sure on this one)
1 Level tsp. Bicarbonate Soda (guessing Baking soda)
1/2 T. Vanilla Essence (extract I'm guessing)
3 oz. Sugar
3 oz. Margarine or Butter
1/2 Pint Milk & Water (I believe it's 1/2 pint each)
Sive (Sift?) the flour and Cocoa together and add the sugar. Melt the margarine or butter in a saucepan and add the syrup, milk & water. Add to dry ingredients. Dissolve the bicarb in about 2 tsp. water & add the vanilla essencce. Add to the cake mixture, mix very well. Place the mixture into 2 well greased 7" sandwich tins (Don't have sandwich tins..) and bake in hot oven (approximately 400 degrees Fahrenheit). Bake until risen & firm (about 20-25 min.) Turn out & cool.
2 oz. margarine/butter and Cocoa
4 oz. icing sugar (powdered sugar?)
3 oz. of coffee melted in hot water (?)
Beat together until thick & smooth
