  • 200g Self Raising Flour
  • 200g Caster Sugar
  • 2tsp Baking Powder
  • 75g Cocoa Powder
  • 200ml Water
  • 2tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 125ml Sunflower Oil

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C; 375°F; Gas 4
  2. Grease a cake tin (you can use any size but remember the mixture will double in volume once cooked, so allow extra room!) using a little oil, making sure that the edges are greased. Then add a little flour to the tin and move the tin around, this will coat over the oil that you have just used
  3. Sieve the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder into a large mixing bowl
  4. Add the sugar
  5. Slowly incorporate all of the wet ingredients (water, sunflower oil, lemon juice and vanilla essence)  into the flour and cocoa powder mix
  6. Give the mixture a good mix making sure that all of the ingredients  have been properly mixed in
  7. Place the cake mixture into the greased cake tin and put into the oven
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden in colour and if softly pressed feels springy. Also using a skewer place in to the centre of the cake making sure no cake mixture is on the skewer when removed

You may notice that the cake is a little crumbly when cut, this is normal. This cake is suitable for people who are allergic to dairy products.
