50g butter
1 T golden syrup
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 T cocoa
1 C flour
1 t baking powder.
Few drops vanilla essence.
1 t baking soda (I usually just use baking powder again as I dislike the soda taste in baking.)
3/4 c milk

Melt butter and syrup in a small pot. Put melted ingredients into a bowl. Add egg and sugar & beat well.

Sift cocoa, flour and baking powder together.

Fold sifted ingredients and vanilla into egg mixture.

Dissolve baking soda in milk. (skip this if you're not using soda) Fold milk into egg mixture.

Pour mixture into two greased and lined 20cm sponge sandwich tins. Bake at 190*C for 30 mins or until cake springs back when lightly touched.

Leave in tin for 5 mins before turning out onto a wire reack. When cold ice with chocolate icing. Sandwich together with cream/icing. [or bake in one big tin and increase cooking time.]

I use the one that ange164 typed out that has you melting things in a pot.except I use a large pot, and add the sugar to the melting pot, and pull it off the ring as soon as everythings melted, add the milk and vanilla (to make sure its cool enough not to cook your egg) then the egg then I just add the other stuff to the pot instead of using a bowl, one less thing to wash ;) its a good recipe for cookingin the microwave as well

Hopemy recipe is what you are looking for

A simple one would probably use eggs, milk, flour and cocoa powder. Since you are not using baking soda or self raising flour, you got to whip the eggs (or yolks and whites) separately so your cake will have enough aeration.otherwise its just a chocolate brick.
