Gamer Treats: Boiled Chocolate Cake

Here is a quick and easy recipe for the hungry gamer. A dense chocolate cake for all seasons using basic kitchen ingredients. This time tested cocoa hit is filling and easy to eat at the desk. It also lasts a long time, cook some now and enjoy it for a week!

Boil ingredients:

  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups caster sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa (or a bit more I don’t really measure this)
  • 1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda

Dry ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups self raising flour

Melt the butter and add all the first ingredients. Use a big pot or it’s going to get messy.
When you add the bi-carb stay at the stove top and stir it continuously. It will froth up and probably overthrow if you leave it.
Simmer it on low for 5 minutes then turn the stove off and leave it to cool down.

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Add the eggs and flour to the boiled ingredients and mix it well, it takes a bit to get the little lumps of flour out.
Pour into a greased and lined (at least the bottom) cake tin.

I never know how long it actually takes to cook, I think an hour… just poke it with a skewer to check that it’s cooked all the way through.
Run a knife around the tin and turn it out onto a baking rack. Peel away the baking paper but then leave it on so the cake doesn’t dry out.
Allow to cool.

It will look a little sunken in the middle, just fill it with icing!

You’ll start to taste the bi-carbish flavour the second or third day. Really nice warmed up and served with cream.
