How well can you follow instructions? - Chocolate cake :)

For my how well can you follow instruction, instructions, I made a chocolate cake. I chose to do this because I found this recipe on a Nestle cocoa box while I was on holiday and I was curious to see if it was easy and yummy.

Recipe:3 eggs separated
120g flour
175g sugar
60ml oil
25g cocoa
125ml hot water
10ml baking powder
5ml vanilla essence

- Sift flour, baking powder and salt together.
-Mix cocoa and hot water and allow to cool.
-Combine egg yolk, oil, sugar, vanilla essence and cocoa mixture.
-Add this to dry ingredients and mix well.
-Whip egg whites till stiff and fold into mixture.
-Bake at 180 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
To microwave:
pour in plastic mould on high (80%) for 10-12 minutes (700 watt)

Everything turned out pretty good. It was what I expected. I found the recipe easy to follow. I burned the top of the cake though but it was fine, (I scraped it off hehe). I doubled the recipe and also cut back on the sugar a bit. I made a chocolate icing to go with it. It is a simple chocolate cake that would go extremely well with vanilla ice cream :)

oh and sorry miss kelly, I didn't put up pictures.  I could show you from my phone at school though.
