Speedy Chocolate Traybake

It’s Sunday evening and you really really want cake. There is nothing in the house and you really cannot be bothered with the faff of making a cake. Fear not, this is a super speedy cake that if you can’t wait for it to cool down is made and ready to eat in just 45 minutes!!

This is very moist cake and while I made it gluten free,  you can of course use ordinary self raising flour instead.

To make a non gluten free version substitute the flour for normal self-raising flour. This makes 12 very generous squares of cake.
