Sometimes all you need is a really simple, well-cooked cake. Great British Bake Off finalist Ruth Clemens shares her easy chocolate chip cake recipe with us, decorate as you wish for any occasion


  • 150g butter, softened
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs, medium
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 100g chocolate chips

You could decorate with the cake with some melted chocolate and sprinkles if you have some!


  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/320F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Prepare a 20cm (8") cake tin by greasing well and lining the base with a circle of baking paper.
  3. Cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and the flour to the mixture and beat well until fully combined. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  4. Place the mixture into the tin and roughly level to top using the back of a silicone spoon.
  5. Bake in the middle of the oven for 30-35 minutes until golden and springy to the touch.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Place on a plate, dust with a little icing sugar and serve.

well, its nice! check out my blog about chocolate cakes


Used this recipe for cake pops, raised nicely on most, chocolate chips sunk but that was expected in cake-pops. Very tasty.


did you use self raising flour?


It was a nice cake i used chocolate chunks and they sank to the bottom of the cake thankfully my cake did rise


Baked this today, a complete waste of ingredients, another pancake!


Love this cake, really tasty. Lovely plain or decorated for any occasion


Baked this for my sons birthday and doubled the ingredients. Sadly turned out as flat as a pancake :( definitely needs a second raising agent.
