30th Birthday Party Chocolate Cake recipe

Here is the recipe for an easy chocolate cake to make.
I baked this cake for Ryan’s 30th birthday party.
I also made cupcakes using the same recipe. I will write more on this later. 
 
Chocolate Cake recipe
Ingredients
1 cup (125g) self raising flour
1 cup (155g) brown sugar
1/3 cup (45g) of cocoa powder
1/4 cup (30g) plain flour
1/4 teaspoon bicarb soda
100g dark chocolate melted
125g butter
3 eggs
3/4 cup (190ml) milk

Directions
Step 1: Preheat the oven to moderately slow, 160 degrees C/140 degrees C fan-forced. Grease a deep 20cm round cake tin and line the base with baking paper

Step 2: Beat butter and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time until just combined.

Step 3: Stir in sifted flours, bicarb soda and cocoa, then stir in the melted chocolate and milk Spread in cake tin and bake for approximately 1 hour 15 minutes or until firm to touch.

Step 4: Leave in cake tin for 15 minutes, then turn onto wire rack to cool.

Step 5: Decorate with icing, strawberries or berries. Normally I add icing and berries! For Ryan’s 30th birthday party I used thick chocolate icing and then added the white icing letters once they set to the top.
