My Amazingly Soft & Moist Chocolate Sponge Cake

I have another recipe for chocolate cake on Zaar but this one has just become by new favourite. Unless I'm baking a really special chocolate cake for an event, I tend not to make cakes that call for chocolate as it is never in the cupboard when I come to bake! This chocolate cake is the result of years of playing around with recipes & I personally think it is fab. You get the same incredibly moist & soft sponge texture you find in a store bought cake but all the great taste of a homemade cake. In fact, I think that this cake is so rich it doesn't even need to be iced / frosted - of course, if you want a really indudgant treat, then go ahead & whack some on! I find that this cake freezes well for a couple of months & keeps well in an airtight container for around a week. I stated 1/3 cup cocoa in the recipe but if the cake if for adult chocaholics then you can always add more - I find that kids sometime find too much cocoa a bit bitter.
