For the Cake:

- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 150 grams (5 oz.) caster sugar
- 30 ml (2 tablespoons) golden syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 medium eggs, beaten
- 150 ml (1/4 pint) whole milk
- 150 ml (5 oz.) vegetable oil
For the icing:
- 75 grams (3 oz.) unsalted butter
- 175 grams (6 oz.) icing sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons milk of warm water
- Preheat oven to 350ºF/180ºC/Gas Mark 4. Next, grease and line two 7 inch/ 18cm round cake tins.
- In a bowl, sieve the flour, baking soda, and cocoa powder. Apply the sugar and combine well. Make a well in the center and place the eggs, oil, milk, and syrup. Beat well until smooth.
- Spread the mixture into the 2 tins, place in the oven, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or just until risen and firm to the touch. Remove and leave to cool before transferring to a cooling rack.
- Use a buttercream icing to sandwich the 2 cakes together. To make the icing, add the butter in a bowl and using an electric mixer on the low-speed beat until soft.
- Then, gradually fold in the icing sugar and apply enough milk or water in order to make the icing spreadable and fluffy. Sift and whisk the cocoa powder into the icing.
- Next, use more butter icing to cover the top and the sides of the cake. Using a palette knife, make swirls on top of the cake and decorate (optional).
