Method

+/- 30 min
 
Preheat the oven to 180 ºC. Spray a 24 cm cake tin with non-stick spray or grease well. Bring the oil, water, margarine and cocoa to the boil over medium heat. Sift the cake flour and add to the oil mixture along with the sugar. Add the buttermilk, vanilla essence, eggs and bicarbonate of soda and mix well. Turn the batter into the cake tin and bake for about 30 minutes or until a testing skewer comes out clean. Heat all the ingredients for the sauce except the vanilla essence over medium heat. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, stir in the vanilla essence and stand for 5 minutes. Pour the hot sauce over the hot cake. (If the sauce becomes too thick heat in the microwave oven for a few seconds). Cool the cake in the tin. Serve with cream if desired. Makes a medium-sized torte.
