I made the first one recently and everyone raved about it but i made it in asquare cake tin. I was wondering the same thing, does it rise much in the roasting tin or come out like a brownie!

Have made this style of cake for ages. It's huge! Makes a great cake for splitting in half and turning into a sort of black forest type of cake with tinned cherries etc. I just use a punnet of yoghurt, any sort, but berry ones are best. I call it the "chocolate gateaux for dummies".

evorotorua's special is still the one to beat! have made it countless times for special ocassions, it cuts well, never crumbly or dry. Have iced it with several variations, from ganache, to butter cream, and marzipan.

Chocolate Yoghurt Banana Cake
*An easy no fail recipe
2 cups sugar
200gms butter or margarine
3 cups self raising flour
2eggs
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 largespring form tin, roasting dish or into muffin cups.
Bake as a large cake for around 1hr 10mins, at 180c or in muffin cases 10-12 minutes.

Note: *You can leave out the bananas if desired* I prefer this recipe without.

Ice with chocolate butter icing.
can also be split thru and filled with a choc creamicing, dust top with sifted icing sugar.
*makes a large cake or around 25 large cup cakes*
*Cake freezes well

I've been given that exact same recipe from a friend of mine and happened to make it in a roasting tin just this very afternoon. I've iced it with chocolate icing, put 2/3rds of the cake in the fridge and have glad-wrapped and frozen the rest in portions for school lunch boxes. I can defo recommend you make it 4crittersnmee!!! :)
edited to add that I baked mine for an hour though, not 30 mins above?? Maybe you can check if after 30 mins and go from there. Also if you haven't got any yogurt, you can make it with sour cream instead.

4crittersnmee, Jun 18, 7:51pm
It does sound "bloody good".THANKS lovely recipe folk!

just_lookin1, Jun 19, 2:16am
if it goes in a roasting dish doea it rise much? i just wondered cos a roasting is abit larger than 2 round cake tins isn't it? so does it rise like cake or come out more like chocolate square?
