My nan's chocolate cake


I thought I might share one of my grandma's recipes with you. She makes the best cake in the world and this is the one I used to have for my birthday when I was a kid. I still love it a lot - it's a very fluffy cake with tiny bits of chocolate in it. It's also extremely easy to make and you don't need many ingredients. I definitely recommend trying it out, it tastes amazing.

Have fun baking! x

List of ingredients:

200g butter
100g sugar
100g powder sugar
1 package of vanilla sugar 
4 eggs
a pinch of salt
400g flour
1 package of baking powder
1/8 l milk
100g chocolate flakes

How to make this cake:

1. Beat the butter with an electric whisk (until fluffy).

2. Add the sugar, the powder sugar, the vanilla sugar, the eggs and the salt, then whisk it.

6. Put the dough into a loaf tin ( you might grease it before, it makes it easier to remove the cake after it's been baked.)

7. Bake the cake at 180 ° C at circulating heat ( preheating isn't required) for an hour.

Hope you'll like this recipe! Have fun trying it out and enjoy eating haha!
