    For the cake
    - 225g/8oz plain flour
    - 350g/12½oz caster sugar
    - 85g/3oz cocoa powder
    - 1½ tsp baking powder
    - 1½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
    - 2 free-range eggs
    - 250ml/9fl oz milk
    - 125ml/4½fl oz vegetable oil
    - 2 tsp vanilla extract
    - 250ml/9fl oz boiling water
    For the chocolate icing
    - 200g/7oz plain chocolate
    - 200ml/7fl oz double cream

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease and line two 20cm/8in sandwich tins.

  • 2. For the cake, place all of the cake ingredients, except the boiling water, into a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon, or electric whisk, beat the mixture until smooth and well combined.

  • 3. Add the boiling water to the mixture, a little at a time, until smooth. (The cake mixture will now be very liquid.)

  • 4. Divide the cake batter between the sandwich tins and bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes, or until the top is firm to the touch and a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
    5. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow to cool completely, still in their tins, before icing.

  • 6. For the chocolate icing, heat the chocolate and cream in a saucepan over a low heat until the chocolate melts. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk the mixture until smooth, glossy and thickened. Set aside to cool for 1-2 hours, or until thick enough to spread over the cake.
    7. To assemble the cake, run a round-bladed knife around the inside of the cake tins to loosen the cakes. Carefully remove the cakes from the tins.

  • 8. Spread a little chocolate icing over the top of one of the chocolate cakes, then carefully top with the other cake.
    9. Transfer the cake to a serving plate and ice the cake all over with the chocolate icing, using a palette knife.
