This recipe was given to me some years ago when I needed a hot chocolate dessert for a special family occasion.. Thank you again Rozanne. It is great as a dessert or as a cake. (8 servings)

What you need

2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of cream of tartar
3 tablespoons drinking chocolate

3 eggs
1 ¼  cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
175g margarine
1 cup plain yogurt

1 ¼ cups milk
75g butter
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons drinking chocolate

The process

Sift together all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl.

In another bowl, cream together the sugar and margarine, add the eggs, yogurt and vanilla essence and mix together.

Add the flour mixture mix to combine well.

Pour into a rectangular 2 liter or so oven dish and bake at 190 Celsius for 40 minutes.


When the cake is almost done, add the sauce ingredients to a pot and bring to the boil, then remove from heat.

Remove the cake from the oven, poke a few holes into it with a knife while still hot and pour over the hot sauce.

Serve straight away with some fresh whipped cream or ice cream as a dessert or let it cool and serve as a super moist and delicious cake.
