hopscotch cake

  • 2½ cups (375g) plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups (350g) brown sugar
  • 200g unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • ⅓ cup (35g) cocoa powder, sifted
  • 200g dark cooking chocolate, melted
  • icing (confectioner’s) sugar, sifted for dusting
  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C (320°F). 
  2. Place the flour, baking powder, sugar, butter, eggs, milk, cocoa and chocolate in a bowl and mix well to combine. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 22cm (8½ in) square cake tin lined with baking paper. Bake for 1¼ hours or until cooked when tested with a skewer. 
  3. Cool in the tin for 
5 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Trim the top off the cake and brush off any crumbs using a pastry brush. Cut the cake into four squares and place them upside down on a cake board. 
  4. Cut 
the numbers out of paper or buy wooden templates and cookie cutters from specialty baking stores. Place a number on each of the cakes and dust with the icing sugar. Carefully remove the numbers and arrange the cakes in the shape of a hopscotch. Serves 8.
