1 teaspoon baking powder
few drops vanilla essence
1 teaspoon baking soda

Melt the butter and the golden syrup in a small saucepan. Pour teh melted ingredients into a bowl. Add egg and sugar and beat it together well. 
Sift the cocoa, flour and baking powder together. Fold the sifted ingredients and vanilla into the egg mixture. Dissolve the baking soda in milk then fold  this into the egg mixture. 
Pour the mixture into two greased and lined 20 cm sponge sandwich tins. 
Bake at 190 C for 30 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched. 
Leave in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

You could enjoy the cake like this or ice with your favourite icing or just sprinkle with some icing sugar.
