Molten chocolate cake

50ml espresso

1 cup boiling water

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 eggs, beaten

2 cups sugar

2 tsp baking soda

2/3 cup cocoa

1¾ cups plain flour

Preheat oven to 180*C.

In a large mixing bowl, with a whisk, combine ingredients one at a time starting from the top and working your way down.

Mix well until all combined (will be quite runny)

Pour into a greased and lined 20 cm cake tin

Place into the oven for 50 minutes, checking with a skewer to ensure cooked through.

Check regularly, and skewer test to check when ready.

Allow to cool before turning out.

Enjoy with some vanilla or hokey pokey ice-cream.
