Laura's Vanilla and Choc Cake

I am not the only one who enjoys all things baking, both my eldest children are not shy of the kitchen which is great. I have taught them well!
Laura recently treated us to this lovely cake which was a nice to eat as it was to look at :)

Pretty and Tasty

10oz of plain white flour
5oz of sugar
3 eggs
8oz unsalted butter
1tsp vanilla extract (not the flavored stuff)
1tsp baking powder
1oz cocoa powder
A splash of milk if needed

Add all the ingredients except the cocoa into a large mixing bowl and mix until well incorporated and creamy, you may need that splash of milk. Place half of the mixture into another bowl and mix in the cocoa to that half. Spoon a bit of mix from each bowl into a 8 inch cake tin until both mixes are used up. Bake on 350 degrees until cooked through. Enjoy with a nice hot drink of tea or coffee.
