Sinfully Chocolate Cake

Today is a very special friend's birthday. Not exactly her actual birthday but rather a be-early birthday celebration for her as she will be out of town during her birthday week.

Decided to make Shela this rich and chocolatey cake as a surprise during our Rest & Relax gathering.

Got this recipe from one of my gf's blog - Sweet Crumbs - Rich Dark Chocolate Cake which I rename to Sinfully Chocolate Cake

Makes: 22cm cake tin
* if the portion is too big, u can half the ingredient and use a 18cm cake, 2cm-3cm height and bake for 1hr.

• 250g dark chocolate chips

• 215g self rising flour

• 3 eggs at room temperature, beaten

• 250ml of water

Ingredient for Chocolate Topping (can x2 for 22cm tin)
• 20g butter, chopped
• 125g dark chocolate, chopped

Method for Cake
1. Preheat oven to 160deg C and lightly grease a 22cm cake tin

(i would suggest to melt the chocolate chip till 3/4 done then add in the butter)

5. Add the flour & cocoa (& ground almond if using) mixture and stir well till combined
6. Pour the mixture to the cake tin and bake for 1hr 30min
