300ml boiling water

80g butter

1 tsp vanilla essence

300g self raising flour

30g cocoa

125g caster sugar

1tsp bicarb soda

ICING

100g butter

Preheat oven to 140c fan forced.

Prepare springform cake tin with baking paper on base.

Grease springform cake tin with butter.

Pour all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk until uniform.

When liquids are cold enough to put your finger it comfortably, pour liquids into dry ingredients and whisk until uniform consistency.

Pour cake batter into greased cake tin and bake in oven for 35minutes (check if cake is cracked on top - it could be 50mins, I can’t remember. I’m fairly certain it is 35mins)
