Cinnamon & Cocoa Cake

I made that cake not long ago - I felt like making a cake but did not have any raisins or anything special to make the cake with so I used this recipe. The cake was quite tasty and rather light - not too sweet. I am not a big fan of cocoa cakes but that one was good.


What you need to make it:
  • a loaf cake tin,
  • flour: 2 and 1/4 cup,
  • sugar: 3/4 cup,
  • eggs: 2,
  • milk: 1 cup,
  • butter: 170g,
  • cinnamon: 1/2 tsp,
  • cocoa: 4 Tsp,
  • baking soda: 1Tsp,
  • jam/marmalade: about 30 dag (1 small jar).
For the icing: about 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1-2 Tsp of milk, 1 Tsp melted butter.

What to do with it all:

1. Grease and flour the loaf tin (do not use too much flour - just a bit).
2. Warm up the oven (375F).
3. Mix the melted butter with marmalade, add eggs and (gradually) milk. Mix it of course.
4. Mix all the dry ingredients and add them to the liquid ones, Mix again.
5. Pour the cake mixture into the greased and floured tin.
6. Bake it for about 45 minutes - check the cake with a toothpick at the end of baking.

When the cake is cool, you can decorate it with some icing. I made it with powdered sugar, milk and a bit of butter.
