Mrs. Clancy's Chocolate Cake

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Ian Snell

The ingredients for this cake are simply stirred together in a bowl, it's the easiest chocolate cake you will ever make, and close to the best you've ever tasted too! This recipe was given to me by a bloke I worked with some 30 years ago. He used to regularly share his mothers chocolate cake with his mates at work. He would only give me the recipe if I promised him that I would always call it "Mrs. Clancy's Chocolate Cake" after his mum. Here it is...

What a fantastic chocolate cake!!!!! Moist, Dark and so yummy with clotted cream. It was very easy to make a real hit with everyone who tried it. I didn't have a ring tin so used one large sandwich tin but it didn't seem to make much difference. Mrs Clancy, you deserve a medal!!
