Making the cake
- Start by greasing and lining a 9 x 13 inch / 23 x 33 cm cake pan with parchment/baking paper.
- Melt the butter and then stir in the cocoa powder and water with 1 teaspoon of coffee dissolved in it. Coffee enhances the taste of the chocolate, and there is no taste of the coffee in the cake at all.
- However, if you do not want to use coffee, then just leave it out and add the plain water instead. Bring this mixture to a boil, then remove from the heat.
- In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda ( bicarbonate of soda) sugar, and salt.
- Beat the cocoa mixture into the flour mixture, then stir in just ⅓ cup (102g) of the condensed milk, vanilla extract and buttermilk*. Whisk until combined.
- Pour the cake mixture into the prepared pan.
- Bake in a preheated oven of 350°F/ 170°C for 15 to 20 minutes, until the cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool in the pan.
*If you do not have buttermilk, then substitute it by adding 2 teaspoons of lemon juice or vinegar to ½ cup (125ml) full fat / full cream milk. Let it stand for 5 minutes before using it in place of the buttermilk.
- In a small pan, melt the butter and stir in the cocoa powder and ¾ cup ( 230g) condensed milk.
- Stir in the powdered sugar/icing sugar and mix well.
- Pour the frosting over the cake and allow it to set before slicing.
Leftover frosting? Delicious ideas
If you find that you have extra frosting, don't throw it away. This frosting makes a great chocolate sauce for your ice cream. Store any extra frosting in an airtight container and use it over ice cream or in a milkshake.
