In a medium sized bowl, mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla, then the flour, cocoa powder and milk, stirring.
Add to a shallow cake tin 18 – 20cm in diameter and bake on the oven for 20mins on a 160.c heat.

Melt the chocolate over a bain marie, stirring occasionally until melted and cover the cake.
