I got the recipe for this one from my sister-in-law a few months ago and it has been a regular on my baking list since then. Every time it has come out light, moist and fluffy. In this picture we sprinkled it with caster sugar just to add a slight crispness to the top....my son was a little heavy handed lol, but once I cut it up to freeze some, the excess sugar came off.
Here is the recipe. Originally it was taken from a little newsletter or recipe book printed by the Renmark Marching Girls Club way back in 1985.
2-3 dessertspoons cocoa
1 cup milk
2 cups sugar
2 dessertspoons golden syrup
3 cups of SR Flour
Mix all ingredients together.
Once thoroughly mixed add 1 cup of boiling water to which has been added 1 teaspoon of bicarb soda.
Bake in a moderate oven for 45 minutes (my oven takes more like an hour).
Makes 4 log tins or 1 large tin
How easy is that!!! Very little effort for such a large cake which will feed the family for quite a while.
