You’ll need:

For the cake:

1.5 cups plain flour

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1tsp baking soda (or 3tsp baking powder)

Pinch of salt

1 cup warm water

6tbsp coconut oil (liquid. Use light veg oil if you don’t have it)

1tbsp lemon juice (or white vinegar)

1tsp vanilla extract

For the icing: 

2 tbsp coconut oil

2tbsp milk

1 cup icing sugar

3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Pre-heat your oven to 180C/350F

Sift all of your dry ingredients into a bowl.

Mix your wet ingredients in another bowl.

Combine & stir until lump free.

Pour into a baking tin, or a frying pan if you don’t have one! (Mine’s about 20cm across.)

Bake for 30mins.

Take out and cool in the pan while you make your chocolate fudge glaze.

Gently heat your oil & milk in a pan, add your icing and cocoa, stir until smooth and glossy.

Once your cake is just warm to the touch (not hot!) pour your icing over.

It’ll pool at the edges, but that’s all part of the joy!

Serve with tea, chilled milk or champagne.

I think you’re going to like this one a choco-lot!
