Super Easy Five Minute Chocolate Cake

This is one of my all time absolute favourite chocolate cake recipes. I use it for last minute bake sales, coffee mornings at our church and of course, the annual summer fête that always comes around way sooner than I am prepared for. Much like Christmas, birthdays and most other annual things to be honest.
