Chocolate Coffee Cake; Recipe

Hey Everyone! Today I’m going to share another one of my favourite recipes: Chocolate Coffee Cake. I’ve always really enjoyed cooking and baking and experimenting all kinds of things and this was one of my creations. I usually never measure anything and kind of do everything by eye. This time however, I wanted to make the recipe perfect with all the measurements so that I could share it with you guys. This cake is the perfect balance between chocolate and coffee in my opinion, it tastes like both but not too much. If you want to know how to make this, just keep reading!

Ingredients

~ Cake:

  • 50 gr. Granulated sugar (or not, depended on sweetness)
  • 200 gr. Flour
  • 50 gr. Cocoa powder
  • 1 can of Sweetened condensed milk
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of Vanilla aroma
  • 1 teaspoon of Coffee aroma
  • 1 small Egg

~ Frosting:

  • 200 gr. Unsalted butter, softened
  • 200 gr. Powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Coffee aroma
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla aroma
  • Little bit of milk

How to make the cake I start off by preheating the oven to 180⁰C/ 350⁰F and then lining a round baking tin with butter and parchment paper. I believe my baking tin was 8’’ but I’m not sure, I think any baking tin will do though.

After preparing that, I mixed all the dry ingredients together and poured the egg, milk and vanilla and coffee aroma in that. Just mix everything together, it is a little bit thick so make sure you really mix everything that gets kind of stuck on the bottom. I then poured the mixture into the tin and baked it for around 25-30 minutes.

Once I took the cake out of the oven I just cut it in half and put both halves on a plate to cool them off. To make the buttercream frosting I just mixed all the ingredients together, the amount of milk used depends on the thickness you want the frosting to be. Just kind of adjust the buttercream to how you want it flavoured as well, whether you want more vanilla or not etc. Once the cake was completely cooled I spread the frosting on one half of the cake and then I put the other half on top and frosted the top of the cake as well as the sides.

To decorate, I simply just sifted some cocoa powder over the top and left the sides to show the frosting. Now just grab a cup of tea, a slice of cake and enjoy!

Hope you guys enjoyed today’s post! And I hope you guys will give it a try, it’s certainly worth it!

Sara, out 🙂
