Aunty Dossie was one of my first cooking inspirations. When I was younger I would go and stay on her dairy farm where I had my first 'farm to table' experiences. In fact, it was those authentic and truly fresh flavours that ignited my interest in cooking. She is no longer with us, and here is her Chocolate Cake recipe, shared in her memory.
125g (4oz) butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons coconut
1 heaped cup Self Raising Flour
3 level tablespoon Drinking Chocolate
Besat butter and sugar, add milk and vanilla, then chocolate, flour and coconut.
Put into a greased sandwich tin. Bake in a moderate oven.
The recipe is simple and economical and most probably at least 40 to 50 years old.
