It is such a delight to read and cook and taste the recipes from my childhood. These all came from mum's old hand written cookbooks, from recipes that were passed over a kitchen table and a cup of tea, posted from relatives or swapped over the backfence.
Bring slowly to the boil, stirring continuously:
1 cup water
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Allow to cool.
When cold, stir in 2 well beaten eggs, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 2 cups self raising flour.
Pour into greased tin and bake in a moderate oven for 35-40 minutes.
