Chocolate Fudge Cake

I will post something that's not sweet soon but I just have to share this one with you all. It's currently in the oven and smelling oh so gorgeous so I will add pictures later. (EDIT: errr it all got eaten so quickly there were no pictures taken....Ooopsie!)

Chocolate Fudge Cake
(original recipe can be found here)

For the sponge...
85g self raising flour
30g cocoa powder
pinch of salt
115g light muscovado sugar (I used soft light brown sugar and it worked fine!)
115g unsalted butter
1tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
2-3tbsp milk
For the sauce...
85g light muscovado/soft brown sugar
30g cocoa powder
225ml milk

1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
2. Cream together the butter and sugar until they're light and fluffy.
3. In a separate bowl, lightly beat together the eggs and vanilla essence.
4. Slowly add the egg mixture to the butter and mix together thoroughly.
5. Sift in the flour, cocoa and salt. Fold this in gently.
6. Line and grease a deep, round cake tin (this cake rose a heck of a lot more than I expected it to.)
7. Spoon in the cake mixture and roughly smooth the top.
8. Whisk together the ingredients for the sauce. (I found that whisking it quickly got rid of any lumps)
9. Pour this evenly over the top of the uncooked cake mixture and then bake in the oven for 40-60mins.
10. Eat hot, warm or cold with whatever you want!
