Chocolate Yoghurt Banana Cake
*An easy no fail recipe

2 cups sugar
200gms butter or margarine
3 cups self raising flour
2 eggs
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
2 mashed bananas
1+ 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup plain yoghurt
1 cup boiling water *add last*

Place all ingredients into a large bowl, pouring the boiling water over the butter or margarine to melt it.
Mix all ingredients together to combine and that’s it!
Pour into a large spring form tin, roasting dish or into around 25 large muffin cups.
Bake as a large deep cake for around 1hr 10mins,(that is in a large deep spring form pan) at 180c or in muffin cases 10-12 minutes.
*makes a large cake (roasting dish size and quite deep, I made it in a rectangular tin, and another square tin from 1 mix. For a larger layered cake it also works well if you make a 1 and a half mix,)
*Cake freezes well*
