Auntie M’s Chocolate Cake


  • 3 cups self-raising flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract…we choose Heilala vanilla
  • ¾ cup West Coast Baking Cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking soda, sifted
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 200g butter, softened
  • 1 cup plain yoghurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup hot coffee

A recipe handed down through the generations, Aunty Maureen’s Chocolate Cake is a family favourite – perfect for any celebration and equally good for every day occasions too. Rich, moist and keeps well too (if there’s any left!)


Put all ingredients into a large bowl

Beat using electric beaters for 1 minute

Pour into prepared cake tin

Bake at 170°C for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted comes out clean
