    phraser's Note:

    This cake is handy for those on a budget as it can be made using ingredients commonly found in every pantry. It is also good for vegans or those with allergies, as it contains no egg, and if made without the frosting, no dairy. It's moist, tasty, and very easy to make and clean up after. NB measurements are Australian cups and spoons.

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 180 C (350F).
    2. 2
      Grease and flour a 20cm round tin.
    3. 3
      Place all cake ingredients (except icing sugar) into a bowl and whisk until smooth.
    4. 4
      Pour into prepared tin and bake 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in tin for 10 minutes before turning out.
    5. 5
      When cool, either dust with optional icing sugar (vegan and dairy-free option), or top with icing.
    6. 6
      To make icing, combine sugar, cocoa and butter, then add small quantities of the hot water (I suggest a teaspoon at a time, up to a total of 2 tablespoons), stirring vigerously, until icing consistency is as you like it.

      I thought icing sugar was the same as powdered sugar. Guess not. I barely used 1/4 cup water when making the icing and it was too runny. Had to add more powdered sugar and got it a little thicker. Once it set up a little it was ok. I used three tablespoons cocoa in the icing to get a more chocolate/fudge taste. Next time I make it I will use more cocoa in the cake as well.

      VERY good cake. Made it Texas Sheet Cake style. I did use the frosting recipe which was also good. Absolutely easy to make with ingredients I always have on hand. Made for AU/NZ recipe swap, Adopt a Joey.
