Chocolate Mud Cake

Chocolate Mud Cake
Inspired by:

Why? We are going out to dinner and my husband volunteered me to bring dessert!

I used:
250g Margarine- Dairy free
250g Chocolate- Dairy free
1cup water
¼ cup/60ml vegetable oil
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence/powder
1 ½ cups gluten free self raising flour
½ cup plain gluten free flour
½ cup cocoa
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 tsp instant coffee

What I did:
Preheat oven to 160C, and line and or grease 25cm diameter cake tin, 15cm deep.
In a medium saucepan, combine butter, chocolate, oil, sugar and water over a medium heat, stirring continually, taking care not to boil or burn it. 
Once it has melted together, add vanilla and take off heat, (turn off element). 
Mix the flours, cocoa and instant coffee in a large bowl, then add the chocolate mixture from the saucepan. Once combined add the eggs, and stir until just mixed. 
Cook for 1 hr 15 mins or until tester comes out clean.

Comments after eating Chocolate Mud Cake!
Everyone’s comments were positive and even the friends who don’t normally eat cake finished their whole piece, which I will take as a good sign. Was chocolately and moist enough, and didn’t need any icing, although it would be good with some as well. We ate ours with toasted marshmellows, which was a very good accompaniment.
As you can see by the time I got around to taking a photo. . .there wasn't much left.
