Preheat the oven to 180°c

Melt the butter or cooking margarine until soft in a large mixing bowl

Mix in the caster sugar

Add the flour, cocoa powder and eggs, mixing well, then add the vanilla essence

Pour the mixture evenly into two greased and lined cake tins

Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the cakes have risen and are lightly golden.

Cool completely

To make the icing, beat together the icing sugar, cocoa powder and butter, slowly stirring in two or three teaspoons of boiling water or milk. Be careful not to make the icing too runny

Spread the chocolate icing over the top of one of the cakes, then carefully place the other cake on top. Cover the top with more icing, then serve.

Melted butter or margarine should not be runny To test the cake is ready, insert a skewer into the middle of the cake – if it comes out clean, the cake is ready
