INGREDIENTS

90g butter, chopped, at room temperature
1 cup caster sugar

1/3 cup cocoa
¾ cup milk
1/3 cup boiling water
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
600ml thickened cream, whipped
ICING
1 cup icing sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa
1-2 tablespoons boiling water

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to moderate, 180°C. Lightly grease 2 x 20cm sandwich cake pans and line bases with lightly floured baking paper.
