My parents own a traditionally-run sheep farm in the Falkland Islands. Cruise ship tourists come to visit and enjoy the experience. I cook this chocolate cake for my mum to serve to her visitors.




  1. Melt the butter, sugar, syrup and milk over a low heat.
  2. Once melted add the flour, cocoa, baking powder and bicarb.
  3. Stir well and pour into a greased tin (I pour into two loaf tins but one larger tin is fine).
  4. Cook for 1 hour on 180°C / gas 4 / 350°F.
  5. Test with a skewer - if the mixtures sticks then cook for a little longer.
