This deliciously moist chocolate cake is the perfect addition to your childs lunchbox, or an after school treat.

What you need

1 cup water
1 ¼ cups caster sugar
125g butter
½ cup CADBURY Bournville Cocoa
½ teaspoon bicarbonate soda
1¼ cups self raising flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup icing mixture
⅓ cup of CADBURY Bournville Cocoa
30g butter, softened
Hot water

Make it

1. COMBINE water, sugar, butter, Cocoa and bicarbonate soda in a saucepan and warm, but do not boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Then bring to the boil and simmer gently for 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl and cool for 30 minutes.
2. ADD the flour and eggs and beat until just combined. Pour into a greased and base-lined 20cm cake pan. Bake in a moderate oven 180°C for 40 minutes or until cooked. Cool for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
3. SIFT together the icing mixture and Cocoa. Mix in the butter and enough hot water to form a soft icing. Spread over the cooled cake and decorate as desired.
