Beat the eggs till light and fluffy. Soften the butter and add to the eggs. Add vanilla essence and sugar and beat till well blended.

Sieve cocoa, flour and baking powder together and gradually fold into the egg-butter mixture, making quick figures of eight in the base of the bowl. Add milk.

Line the base of the dish with greased and floured greaseproof or brown paper and pour in the batter. Pour the batter into a greased and floured dish. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degree F for about 3/4 hour. When cool, gently turn the cake out.

Top the cake with nuts. A dusting of castor sugar will make it look very attractive.

Sieve icing sugar, cocoa and salt together. Heat water
