Chocolate Cake

During the school holidays a friend came to stay with her son, bringing a boiled chocolate cake, a really yummy moist cake which is very easy. I made one on Saturday to take to Melbourne to Son No3 and his wife......

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
4 oz butter
2 1/2 tbsp cocoa
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups SR flour
1/2 bi-carb soda

Place sugar, water, butter,cocoa and soda into saucepan and stir over low heat until butter is melted. Bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
When cool mix in beaten eggs and SR flour. Turn into greased and floured cake tin, mine was 19 cm, 5cm deep. Bake in moderate oven for 25 minutes although mine took a little longer so worht checking!
Sally cooked hers in a ring tin so you could do this if you would like to.
 I have another boiled chocolate cake recipe, it is a bigger cake and it too is very moist so will post this another day.
