Smartie Birthday Cake

It has become something of a tradition that Maxi always has a chocolate smartie cake for his birthday.  This year I decided to try and do something a little more eye catching.  I love baking, but find icing larger cakes something of a chore.  So this cake is very forgiving.

Cake Ingredients 

  • 6 oz of butter or marg
  • 6 oz caster sugar
  • 5 oz of self raising flour
  • 1 oz of coco powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • half teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons of mil


Method. 

  1. Cream together the marg/butter and sugar.  Then add the rest of the ingredients in and mix well!
  2. Put in two 7 inch cake tins (I line the tins with parchment and grease) and place in to a preheated oven of 180 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.  You can tell if the cakes are cooked if when you press the top it gives slightly but springs back.
  3. Remove from oven and leave for 2 minutes before removing from tins and placing on to a wire rack to cool.
