chocolate cake (again)

this is a pimped up version of a recipe i did last year: a simple chocolate cake. but this time i added brown sugar and coconut shavings. yum!! (also added some baking powder which made it more fluffy*)

oven: 200 degrees celcius

2 eggs
 2dl granulated sugar
1 dl brown sugar
1 tsp vanillasugar
1 tsp bakingpowder
4 tblsp cocoapowder
1,5 dl flour (not self-raising)
2 tbsp coconut shavings
1 dl melted butter or margarine
coconut shavings for "lining" the pan

grease and cover a spring pan, about 24 cm or smaller, with coconut shavings.
mix the ingredients, by stirring, not whisking. (i add the butter last so it'll cool down and to avoid making an unplanned omelette)

pour into the pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. when the cake has come of the edges of the pan, it's done. and like the original- wonderful to serve still warm with vanilla ice-cream!


(ok, so maybe not THAT fluffy, but still...)
