This cake is our family favourite and comes together in no time. We make it almost on every occasion and decorate it with superb frosting and chocolate ideas. We believe chocolate is never excess!!!
Many of you might not like the whooping coffee that goes inside this cake. My co-sisters first reaction was I dont like coffee but trust me when you taste it it dosent even taste like coffee. Coffee in fact enhances the cocoa/chocolate flavour in it.
How to prepare the chocolate cake?
- Sieve and mix the dry ingredients
- Mix the wet ingredients .
- Make a batter by mixing both dry and wet ingredients and bake.
What can go wrong?
- Ensure all the ingredients to be at room temperature.
- Coffee should be just warm not too hot. Hot coffee can form lumps difficult to break then.
- Making the batter and resting it for long time can make the cake bake flat.
- If you use old ingredients and open the oven in the middle while baking, the cake may crack and sink in the centre.
So here it is super simple moist decadent, chocolate cake. Every bite is irresistible chocolate and it’s not even too sweet. Just perfect sponge, flavour and always better than market bought!!
We used an instant chocolate ganache made with just two ingredients and poured over the cake. You can decorate it with frosting, chocolates or anything you like.
