Deliciously Easy Chocolate Cake & the best ever chocolate icing. {Recipe}

Life is too short to say no to cake. 

A few days ago I posted a photo on my social media of a chocolate cake I baked with my daughter. I was instantly hit with comments & messages asking for the recipe. 
Now to be honest, I kind of fluked the recipe - I combined a few different recipes from some old cook books. 
Anyway, I winged it & it turned out amazingly! I am so in love with this chocolate cake & I think it will be my new go to recipe. 
The icing is a chocolate icing I've been using for ages, it's so easy & delicious! 

Now a few things about this recipe - I baked mine in a 9x13 pyrex dish - I don't recommend using a glass dish if you haven't done so before (or you don't have the time to carefully watch it, I checked mine regularly & also ended up covering with foil for the last 10 mins). 
I like the idea of using glass as it doubles as the storage tray, but it was very temperamental to bake with. (If you have any tips for baking with glass I would love to hear them!)
Using a rectangular baking tin would be the easiest. 
I, like the rest of the female population, really dislike this word, but it is needed in this post -this cake was super moist - it is incredible!! You have to try it!
My cake was baked on Monday & 2 days later from being on the bench it's still very soft & delicious. I just stored it on the kitchen bench in the pyrex dish with some tin foil covering it. 
Enjoy this delectable treat, we surely have & this will be my go to chocolate cake recipe from now on!

I would love to know if you try this recipe out and your thoughts. 
If you do any variations or improve it in anyway - please leave a comment below. Or share your cake with me on my social media!
