2 cups of self raising flour
¾ cup cocoa
185 gm butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon

Ganache Icing

300gm sour cream
¼ cup sugar
400gm couverture chocolate
½ tsp vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.

Sift flour and cocoa into a large bowl adding remaining ingredients, mixing on low until combined. Turn speed to higher and beat for a further 3 minutes, or until mixture changes colour.

Spoon mixture into a greased 20cm round cake tin and bake in a preheated oven for an hour or until the cake is cooked. (Test by inserting metal skewer). Allow to cool on a wire rack.


Make this icing about an hour before serving. Heat the sour cream and sugar together, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Process the chocolate and vanilla essence in a food processor then add the sour cream mixture. Spoon into a bowl and let stand for about an hour or until the mixture has thickened and is a spreadable consistency.

To Ice Cake

Spread some of the chocolate icing over the cake and smooth the surface with a spatula. Fill a piping bag with the remaining mixture and pipe onto the cake.
