Easy moist heart-shaped chocolate cake

Share the love with this cake. Nothing beats a good chocolate cake. Have a classic chocolate fudge cake to share with the people you love.

For the cake:
225g plain flour
350g caster sugar
85g cocoa powder
1½ tsp baking powder
1½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 eggs
250ml milk
125ml vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
250ml boiling water

Directions
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Grease and line a square pan plus a circular one if wanting to make a heart.

For the cake, place all of the cake ingredients, except the boiling water, into a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon, or electric whisk, beat the mixture until smooth and well combined.
Now place the boiling water into the mixture,slowly incorporating it all, until smooth. (The cake mixture will now reassemble hot chocolate in my opinion.)

Divide the cake batter between the tins and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the top is firm to the touch or a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Remove the cakes from the oven and allow to cool completely then remove out of tins and discard baking paper.

For the frosting
70g Nutella
30g Peanut butter
(however can vary according to taste)
boiling water
(depending on consistency intended)

Directions
This couldn’t be any easier and mess free (unlike when you have to make frosting using icing sugar and it goes everywhere).
So here we go… you place all ingredients in a small bowl and gentle add bowling water to your desire consistency (it will set after awhile so don’t worry if it is a little runny). Then spread over cake. Can decorate any way you like and assemble it to be what you want.
Done, now tell me that was easy?
