Chocolate Cake for my Valentine

We all love Chocolate Cake for Valentine’s Day so bake a special one for your Valentine. I made this one to raise funds for a local charity event – and it proved to be a fantastic draw. Fill with butter cream or fresh cream and decorate with melted chocolate or butter cream as you wish.  It’s one of Grandma's easy recipes. Piece of cake!
What you need
6 oz/175g sugar
6 oz/175g butter
6 oz/175g self-raising flour
2 tbsps cocoa
3 eggs
2 tbsps black treacle (warmed)
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup milk
How to bake
Cream the butter and sugar together. Mix the cocoa and flour together. Beat the eggs. Add alternately to the mixture with the flour and mix gently. Add the warmed treacle and vanilla. Add enough milk to give a soft consistency. Bake in a moderate oven for approximately 45 minutes. (350F, Mark 4, 180 C).
 P.S. Don’t forget the card!
