Easter is a time for family, loads of public holidays and well chocolate (lost and lots of chocolate). This past weekend in celebration of the Easter weekend coming up I decided to bake a little cake. This particular cake was inspired by the Egg on grass cupcakes I made two years ago.
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Beat the eggs, gradually adding the sugar until light.
Add the vanilla essence.
Melt the butter in the milk to make a thin liquid.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and cocoa.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredient mixture.
Mix until smooth and well combined.
Add the hot butter milk liquid to the eggs sugar mixture.
Once it's well combined it should be smooth and
very liquid like (a little runny is perfect).
Pour the batter into a cake tin.
Bake for 25-30 minute.
Allow to cool before icing.
Lightly beat the butter.
Add the icing sugar and beat together.
Add a little bit of colouring until it
reaches the desired colour.
Ice and decorate the cake.
