nigella traditional chocolate cake

I baked a gorgeous chocolate cake according to Nigella Lawson's cooking video. Followed the recipe exactly. But, for me (my opinion) the cake is not so yummy!....i.e. It is not chocolatey enough and a bit dry. I have a better chocolate cake recipe....I'll post the recipe soon.

1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla essence
2/3 cup sour cream
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 eggs

Chocolate Icing
6oz semisweet cooking chocolate
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
2 1/2 cups icing sugar


  1. Seems to be nice and yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I will surely try this out.
