Berke's Amazing Chocolate Cake

While in Turkey I learned many family recipes. This is the most amazing chocolate cake recipe that my 3 year old cousin enjoys baking with his mom. It is a very fast and easy family favorite. Throughout the day, they drink tea and coffee. This cake is the perfect compliment.

Berke's Amazing Chocolate Cake
"Cayli Kek" (Tea Cake)
3 Gals and a Kitchen

3 eggs (whisked)
2 1/4 c water
2 c sugar
3/4 c brewed tea
1/3 c veg. oil
1/3 c margarine (mixed together with veg. oil)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
3 TBSP Cocoa (or more if you like)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 1/4 c flour (add last)
strawberries to garnish

3 c powdered sugar
2 TBSP water

6 TBSP butter
1 egg
1 TBSP cocoa
dash of salt

Cream butter, egg and salt. Add sugar until spreading consistency. Add sugar and beat a little at a time. If chocolate icing is needed add enough cocoa for color.
Preheat oven to 350. Whisk eggs so almost foamy; add all ingredients except for the flour and mix. Slowly add the flour and mix. Grease a Bundt pan and pour the cake batter into the pan. Cook 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Wait until it has completely cooled before you flip the cake.

Meanwhile, let's get started on the icing. Combine powdered sugar, water, softened butter, egg, cocoa, and a dash of salt; mix until it is moist and smooth. Add water if the consistency is not quite right.

Flip the cake onto a plate and drizzle with chocolate icing. Serve with strawberries.

**We did not use icing in the picture above since the children would have been on a sugar high.**
