My youngest brother's birthday is a day after my eldest sister's, so after the lemon cake we had the other day, I thought this cake is the opposite, hence appropriate. I wrote this recipe before, but I'm just going to put it here again for easy reference.


Ingredients (A) :
2 cups flour (I used self raising flour)
3/4 cups cocoa powder
2 teaspoons bicarbonate soda
2 teaspoons baking powder

Ingredients (B) :
2 cups castor sugar ( I reduced this to about 1.5 cups)
1 cup evaporated milk (I used fresh milk)
1 cup cooking oil or melted butter
1 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon chocolate emulco - I didn't have this, so I omitted
3 eggs

Method :
1. Sift together all ingredients in A. Set aside.
2. Mix well all ingredients in B.
3. Pour ingredients B into A and mix well.
4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Oven temperature and time of baking may differ.

For the chocolate ganache:

150gm cooking chocolate - I used Beryl's dark chocolate
1 sudu besar susu pekat
1/4 cawan air panas/susu cair - I used fresh milk
1 sudu besar butter

Untuk membuat choc ganache: masukkan coklat masakan yg dipotong kecil2, susu pekat dan air panas/susu cair kedalam periuk dan masaklah cara double boiler hingga cair. Padam kan api dan masukkan mentega. Kacau hingga mentega cair. Biarkan seketika supaya ganache tak terlalu cair masa curah atas kek.

My kids really like this cake, Alhamdulillah. What I really love about it, is how simple it really is to bake .
