Quick and Easy Gooey Chocolate Cake

This deliciously gooey chocolate cake is so quick and easy to make and doesn’t require any fancy ingredients. It is reasonably cheap as it is made from items that you would normally find lying around your cupboards. Rich, dense and very chocolate; I would describe this as being more like a Swedish dessert cake than a traditional chocolate sponge.

Quick and Easy Gooey Chocolate Cake by Small Acorns

140g butter
195g caster sugar
45g cocoa powder
pinch of sea salt
2 eggs
115g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Icing sugar (for dusting)

Begin by melting your butter gently in a saucepan (or microwave if you prefer) and leave to cool slightly while you get on with the rest of the cake.

Line and grease a 9 inch cake tin (preferably spring form if you have one). Then preheat the oven to 200c.

In a bowl mix the melted butter, cocoa powder, sugar and salt. When combined add the eggs (one by one) and then fold in the flour and baking powder.

Transfer the batter to your cake tin. It will be quite a stiff batter so you will need to smooth it across the bottom of your cake tin with the back of a spoon. Then bake in the oven for around 8-10 minutes. It won’t take much longer than this. Keep an eye on it and remove from the oven when the edges are starting to colour, the top has a skin but the mixture below is still quite loose (rather like a brownie). This cake is rich and dense and won’t have much (if any) rise to it.

Allow to cool slightly then very gently transfer to a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar and enjoy!
