This is Margo's favourite chocolate cake

1 1/4 cups self-raising flour
3 tablespoons of cornflour
2 tablespoons of cocoa
1/2 cup of sugar
75 g of butter
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon of golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1 egg


Turn your oven on to 180 Celsius. Grease a 20cm tin and line the base of the tin with wax paper. Sift the corn flour, flour, cocoa and sugar into a big bowl. Put the butter in a pan and melt it gently. Take the butter off the heat and add the milk, water syrup, vanilla and baking soda and mix it together well. 

Add the egg and whisk the mixture until itís mixed in. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients in the bowl and stir it until itís all mixed. Then pour the mixture into the lined tin and bake for 40 minutes.

When the cake is cooked turn it out onto a rack to cool.
