Chocolate Cake

1/4 cup cocoa powder
250g (8oz) butter, chopped
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon golden syrup (can be substituted for corn syrup)
1 1/4 cups self-raising flour (or all-purpose/plain flour with 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder added)
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to moderate.  Line 20cm cake pan with non-stick paking paper.
Sift cocoa powder into large bowl; add remaining ingredients.  Beat with electric mixer on low speed until combined.  Increase speed to medium; beat until mixture has just changed in colour.  Pour mixture into prepared pan.
Bake in moderate (180ºC/350ºF) about 1 hour or until inserted skewer comes out clean.  Stand cake in pan 10 minutes, then turn onto rack to cool.

Ice if desired.

Its interesting that it has golden syrup in it. Sounds really nice. I like recipes that everything goes in together and mixed. Makes it easy and quick.

Even though it's not a lot of golden syrup, you can taste just a hint of it, and it tastes REALLY good! :)
