Lisa's Chocolate Sludge Cake

Today being the last day our kids have off school, we have decided to make a few things for the freezer for school lunches.  I'm not sure if this will make it as far as the freezer, because it is so damned delicious.   It's an easy, one mix (no creaming) recipe, the only thing you might not always have in your cupboard is Sour Cream.  But it's kind of a staple in our household.

Lisa's Chocolate Sludge Cake
3cups Plain Flour
3 cups White Sugar
3t Baking Powder
3t Baking Soda
3 Eggs
1.5 cups sour cream (I just use one 250ml pack)
1.5c cold coffee
.75 cup cocoa powder
2t vanilla essence
1t salt
Mix it all together well.  Put into a large cake tin, lined with baking paper.  40 mins @ 180C (350F)

It's very nice with Raspberry Sauce (if you missed out buying raspberry canes off us this year, wait till next year, we will have more available then), or with Chocolate/Vanilla icecream.

Thanks for the great recipe Lisa!
