    for the cake


    180g Butter

    125g Sugar

    3 Eggs

    Pinch of Cinnamon

    1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Essence

    180g of self –raising Flour

    75ml of Milk

    80g Coco Powder

    1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder

    110g of Mashed Vivaldi Potato


    for the chocolate Icing


    120g Soft Butter

    240g of Icing Sugar

    2 Tablespoons of Coco powder or melted Chocolate

    1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Essence




    Pre-heat oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas mark 5

    Whisk together the butter and sugar until it is light in colour.

    Add one egg and whisk again adding a little flour.  Repeat this until all the eggs and flour has been whisked in.

    Add the cinnamon, coco powder, baking powder, milk and vanilla essence and whisk again.

    Add the mashed Potato and whisk thoroughly.  This will ensure you do not have any lumps in your mixture and enough air has been introduced into it in order for it to rise.

    Place mixture in 8”/20” cake tin and place in oven for 30 mins

    Turn oven down to 180°C/350°F Gas mark 4 and cook for a further 20 mins.

    Remove from oven and leave to cool for 20 mins, then remove from tin and place on wire rack




    Beat butter and icing sugar together until light and creamy.

    Add Coco powder and Vanilla essence and mix again

    When cake has cooled, apply icing.  You can also decorate your cake with chocolate buttons and Smarties for special occasions.


    Helpful Tips!


    All ovens are different and if you are unsure if your cake is cooked, ask a grown up to gently press the middle of it.  If it is cooked the cake should spring back to place.  If it leaves a finger mark, the cake has not cooked enough and needs more cooking time.



    It is so important to have an adult in the kitchen with you when you are cooking.  So many accidents happen in the kitchen because people do not take the necessary precautions.  Below is a list.  I would like you to put a tick next to the sentence that is correct, and a cross next to the sentence that is incorrect.  Show an adult to see if you have got it right.


    * Always cook with supervision

    * Don’t bother to wear oven gloves

    * Don’t drop sharp knives in the sink

    * Wash hands, tie back hair and wear an apron

    * Leave the kitchen a mess

    * Don’t forget to time the cake cooking

    * Be responsible & use the kitchen equipment with care
