Easy Chocolate Cake (Cuisine Companion Cooking)

Chocolate cake.  Need I  say more?  This recipe the simplest, best textured and nicest chocolate cake I’ve made (or eaten) in a long time and it’s so easy to make in the  Cuisine Companion that you probably won’t believe it.  I’ve struggled to find the appropriate person/place to credit for the brilliance of creating this recipe – this link is as close as I’ve come.   Once you’ve made it you’ll probably want to say thanks too. 

As with all of the recipes I post if you just want to print it out and avoid my pretty pictures and explanation, head on down to the bottom of this post.   But for those of you who like some explanation and visuals – read on.    You can find more family friendly Cuisine Companion recipes here.  You might also like to join this facebook group Loving the Tefal Cuisine Companion

Turn your oven to  180 degrees (160 if fan-forced).  Line the base of a larger sized cake tin with baking paper and lightly grease the sides.  

Insert the ultra blade into your Cuisine Companion.  And then add all of the ingredients into the bowl!  170g butter, 4 eggs, 250g milk, 300g SR flour, 370g brown sugar, 40g cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence.

Work at speed 8 for one minute.  Scrapes down the sides of the bowl and then work at speed 12 for 20 seconds.

Pour the batter into your cake tin and cook for one hour 0r until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean (without uncooked cake batter on it.)

Remove the ultra blade from your Cuisine Companion bowl and get the little people to clean the bowl for you. This cake mix almost tastes like chocolate pudding – so frankly try stopping them!

Once cooled I iced my cake with a classic mix of butter cream icing.   I reduced my usual recipe by 3/4 to suit the cake size – as I didn’t really think we needed the sides iced as well as the top!    

Butter Cream Icing
1/4 cup of butter
15g cocoa
1 & 1/4 cups if icing sugar
1 tbs of milk.  
Mix this well by hand. 

Yum.

Oh Stop IT! That looks so incredibly scrumptious and I am kind of in the midnight snack zone, where I feel like I could smash a piece of that chocci cake right now. Thanks for sharing Caz, I’ll be filing that one away for baking đŸ™‚ xo

You have convinced me. I am going to Harvey Norman on the weekend to work out how to get myself a Cuisine Companion. So excited! This will probably be the first thing I try. What else do you recommend for a beginner.

I really don’t think you’ll regret it Shelly. I love mine đŸ™‚ Try a risotto. The one from the recipe book works beautifully. I make it pretty much once a week now. Look forward to hearing how you go.
