Easy Single Layer Chocolate Cake
Gather and correctly measure out all your ingredients
In a small bowl, combine hot water, cocoa powder, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Give it a quick mix to combine
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until pale.
Add the egg and mix to incorporate (do not worry if the mixture curdles)
Add the sifted dry ingredients and mix on lowest speed.
Add the cocoa mixture into the batter. Mix on low speed to form a runny batter. Finish off by scraping the sides of the bowl to fully combine.
Pour batter into greased and floured tin. Bake at 170C/325F/Gas 3 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Leave to cool completely before serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy πŸ™‚
