I have my grandma to thank for this recipe. She was always so organized, and she loved this cake because it could be made a day or so in advance, but would still be delicious and moist when it was needed. It’s ideal for birthday parties, when making a cake on the day of the party would send you into meltdown.


For the Cake

  • cup sunflower, peanut or canola oil, plus extra for greasing
  • cups less


  1. Heat the oven to 315°F. Grease two 8-inch cake pans with oil and lightly dust with flour.
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder into a large mixing bowl or food processor. Add the remaining cake ingredients and beat well to give a smooth, thick batter consistency. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans and bake the cakes
