This is the one I use all the time for kids cakes, it can be made with or without the eggs.

Chocolate Cake

1 cup water
115g butter or marg
3 Tbls cocoa
¼ tsp of baking soda
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups SR flour/ or 2 cups of plain flour and 2 tsp baking powder

Pre-heat the oven to 180oC.
Place the water, butter, sugar, baking soda and cocoa into a pot. Bring to a simmer, simmer for 1 minute. Let the mixture cool down, add lightly beaten eggs and vanilla. Add the sifted flour and mix well.
Pour into a well greased cake pan. Cook for 45 - 50 minutes.

Easy choc cake

In a large bowl put 3 1/2 cups flour, 2 1/2 cups sugar, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 1 1/2 cups of cocoa, 1 cup oil, 2 cups milk, 3 teaspoons baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, 4 eggs and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Mix this to a smooth batter then add 2 cups of boiling water. Mix well. bake at 160 for an hour. This makes a huge cake. I usually get a small roasting dish and a large ring tin. You can make half a mixture if you want or do 2 cakes and freeze one. I got the recipe off the internet and its a lovely moist dark cake and so easy to make.

I made this same recipe for the 1st time last week. I wasn't quite sure how the boiling water would work in it but it turned out to be a beaut! ! Photo attached of the end result for my daughter's 18th birthday this last weekend :=)
