Store Cupboard Chocolate Cake

I tasted this cake tonight and it was yum!  It had been decorate and sandwiched with a thin layer of chocolate icing.

10oz SR Flour or 10oz P Flour and 3 3/4 level tsp baking powder

1/2  level tsp salt

3 level tbsp cocoa

6oz caster sugar

1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/2 pint milk

1/4 pint oil

3 level tbsp golden syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Heat oven to gas 4, 350F and 180C.  Grease and line the bases with greaseproof of two 8-inch sandwich tins.

Sift flour, salt cocoa and sugar into a bowl.  Make a well in the middle and dissolve the bicarb in 1tbsp milk, then pour into the flour mixture with the remaining milk, oil, syrup and vanilla.  Beat well.

Pour into the tins and bake in the oven for about 30-40 mins or until cakes spring back when gently pressesd with the fingertip.
