INGREDIENTS

90g butter, chopped, at room temperature
1 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
2¼ cups self-raising flour
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.

  4. Combine water and bicarbonate of soda. Lightly fold into mixture. Pour into pan.

  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until cooked when tested. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  6. ICING. Sift icing sugar and cocoa together into a bowl. In a jug, combine water and coffee. Blend into icing sugar mixture until a smooth, spreadable consistency.

  7. Split cooled cakes to create 4 layers. Layer in between with cream. Spread icing over top.
