    Black Midnight Chocolate Cake — Kaci’s

    –The Recipe I’m going to give you the recipes for two different size cakes. The first one is for a traditional 20cm [8 inch] NON-STICK RING TIN. The second, for making the cake in a larger “Turks Turban” Kugalhof NON-STICK RING TIN mould.

    *This mixture is very liquid when it has been mixed and will only cook evenly in a NON-STICK RING TIN.

    *NEVER…NEVER…Be tempted to Ice and Eat the cake the day you bake it. Always leave it over-night…longer if you can ! [bet you can’t]. It really moistens up overnight. When it cools, after baking, place in a tupperware type container or wrap in cling film. Ice the cake the next day.

    *Because the cake is very liquid when mixed…SPRAY your tin WELL with the usual baking tin sprays. It will not come out of the tin if you don’t.

    **Also, the recipe is not suitable to microwave.

    Standard 20cm [ 8 inch] Cake:

    Pre-heat your oven (temperatures below).
    Sift the following ingredients into a cake mixer bowl:
    1 3/4 cups Flour.
    1 3/4 cups Sugar.
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda.
    1 teaspoon baking powder.
    3/4 cup cocoa..
    1/2 teaspoon salt.

    Add the following to the dry ingredients, strictly in order, mixing after
    each.
    3/4 cup milk
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    1/3 cup vegetable oil – ie. sunflower etc. [NOT OLIVE OR PEANUT ETC.]
    3/4 cup cold instant coffee [Just place 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules in luke warm water].

    Pour into sprayed ring tin. Cook for approx. 30 mins. at 170 deg.C [335 deg. F] in a fan forced oven. A conventional oven will require approx. 40 mins. at 180 deg.C [375 deg.F] Test with a cake tester, [knitting needle]. It is done when the tester comes out clean. Leave for 10 minutes before removing from the tin.

    Larger Turks Turban, Kulgalhof Mould Cake:

    Pre-heat your oven. Add the following to the dry ingredients, strictly in order, mixing after each.
    2 cups flour
    2 cups sugar.
    2 teaspoons baking soda.
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    3/4 cup cocoa
    1 teaspoon salt.

    Add the following to the dry ingredients, strictly in order, mixing after each.
    1 cup milk
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    1/2 cup vegetable oil ie sunflower etc. [NOT OLIVE OR PEANUT, ETC]
    1 cup cold instant coffee, [Just place 1 teaspoon coffee granules in water].

    Mix the above well, starting slowly. Pour into sprayed ring tin. Cook for approx. 40 mins. at 170deg. C [335 deg.F] in a fan forced oven. A conventional oven will require approx. 50 mins. at 180 deg.C [375 deg.F] Test with a cake tester [knitting needle]. It is done when the tester comes out clean. Leave for 10 minutes before removing from the tin.

    “Chocolate Desert Sauce” [YUM !]

    2 cups of Milk
    20 gms. [3 tablespoons / 1/2 oz.] Cornflour
    20 gms. [1/4 cup / 1/2 oz.] Cocoa
    10 gms. [1/4 oz] Butter
    130 gms. [2/3 cup / 4 1/2 oz.] Sugar

    Dissolve cornflour in a small amount of the milk. Dissolve cocoa in a small amount of hot water. Add both to the balance of the milk and slowly boil, [stirring]. Take off the heat, add the butter & sugar and stir until dissolved. Pour over portions of the “Black Midnight Cake”, with ice-cream, as a desert.

    “Chocolate Frosting” [Icing]

    1 1/2 cups of Icing [frosting] Sugar.
    2 Tablespoons Cocoa.
    10 gms / 1/4 oz Butter, softened
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence [optional]
    Milk to Mix.

    Combine the above together using the milk to mix. Add the milk VERY SLOWLY, in small amounts at a time, when mixing.

    When the desired consistency is achieved, beat a little longer. Ice cake using a knife. Dip the knife in hot water occasionally to make spreading the frosting easier.
